TBT very young me with Nicholas Serota with Uri Geller - First time I met him! Inspiring man that truly loves art and believes in artists. The before and after of the British art scene is un-recognizable, he was so important in transforming it. Arts council is about to get awesome!

Some big painting I made a few years ago
So I guess the fortune teller's right, Should have seen just what was there, And not some holy light

Introduction

Born in 1980 and educated at Bretton Hall in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Stuart Semple works have featured in biennales, art fairs and solo exhibitions in Europe, Australia, China and America, and can be found in major international collections including the Getty, Langen, David Roberts, Niarchos foundations and exhibited recently at the Goss-Michael Foundation and Victoria Miro. 


Stuart Semple's playful and expressive use of composition and colour often contradicts a subtle and purposeful agenda that includes recurring themes of art history, spirituality and alienation within his large scale, emotive works. is known for his HappyCloud performance on London’s Southbank in which he flooded the city’s skyline with thousands of pink smiley faced clouds at the height of the recession.


During 2013's Frieze art fair Stuart's recent solo exhibition Suspend Disbelief, from where this work was exhibited, was an immersive exploratory environment with film, paintings and sculpture throughout 15 rooms where magic tricks were performed by holograms, childhood experiences revisited and questioned the cycle of life and death within a room of perpetually blooming flowers.
