ABOUT STUART SEMPLE

Born in 1980, Stuart Semple, is an internationally acclaimed visual artist and curator. Semple has enjoyed a successful artistic career with over 15 international solo exhibitions, 40 group shows and major public art projects alongside numerous art fairs and biennials. Recent projects include collaborations with Amnesty, Bulgari and Moncler. His works have been featured across the media in The Guardian, Time Out, Independent, Observer, BBC news, i-D, Blue Peter, Tatler, Esquire, Italian Vogue, Elle, Dazed & Confused, Evening Standard, The Metro, Harpers, The Sunday Times, South China Morning Post and many more.

Stuart Semple is arguably best known for his public artwork ‘HappyCloud’ in which he flooded the London skyline from Tate Modern with thousands of pink happy-faced clouds made from helium soap and vegetable dye. Initially conceived as a positive responsive to the ‘doom and gloom’ of the recession in 2009, the clouds floated from Tate towards London’s financial district. Stuart has since repeated the performance in Dublin, Milan and this year, Moscow. In recognition for the action he was presented with a medal at the House of Lords in 2013 as part of the United Nations first International Day of Happiness. His most ambitious solo exhibition was 2007′s ‘Fake Plastic Love’ at the Truman Brewery where he blacked out the 8000sq foot Boiler Room in Brick Lane. On opening the exhibition had seen over $1 Million in sales and on closing in excess of 10,000 visitors.

As an artist Stuart makes ambitious and emotive works which have continued to evolve throughout a fifteen-year career. At 35 years of age, he is
already regarded as a leading figure within contemporary painting. Stuart’s eye-catching use of colour and composition often contradicts a subtle and purposeful agenda that includes recurring themes of art history, spirituality and alienation.
