I've been on serious lock down in the #studio and I've got some new work ready to drop next week... Here's a little peek at a bit of a new big #painting

"I was living in a devil town
I didn't know it was a devil town
Oh lord it really brings me down about the devil town.

All my friends were vampires
I didn't know they were vampires
It turns out I was a vampire myself in devil town"

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.
