Neck Face is a graffiti artist born in 1984 in Stockton, California. He is known for his frightening drawing style.

Neck Face originally worked in Stockton and Lodi, California, where he attended Bear Creek High School and Tokay High School. Neck Face gained a great deal of notice through his affixing stickers emblazoned with his art to public objects throughout Stockton and Lodi. Later he evolved into other graffiti techniques and also spread his work to San Francisco, California, where his name can still be seen on many newspaper stands and walls throughout the city. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and was based in Brooklyn, New York City for two years before dropping out.[citation needed] In 2005 he relocated his studio to California, and now splits his time between California, New York, Australia, and Spain.[citation needed]

His most famous public art piece once appropriated the sign on an abandoned storefront of the store "My Old Lady" in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood; he painted under that "...Loves Neckface". Recent renovations to the storefront, however, have removed the sign.

In addition to appearing across billboards and buildings in the United States, Neckface's work can be seen internationally in places such as Sydney and Melbourne, Australia and Tokyo, Japan.
