In Stuart Semple’s works, the emotional and spiritual impact of mass culture on the individual are re-imagined with a playful, exuberant and sociological language.

Semple’s hybrid compositions often comprise of disparate appropriated and found elements which he weaves into alluring surfaces that encapsulate a deep critical analysis of contemporary culture. His world is one of low-culture internet trash, 90s nickelodeon colour palettes. indie music, obscure music videos and cultural theory straight out of the 60s Frankfurt school.

Working across painting, film, public art, sculpture and installation, during the past 15 years Semple has bought a unique voice to the issues facing his ‘millennial’ generation particularly through his perspectives on anxiety, the impact of technology and the image world itself.

Semple came to public attention in 2009 through his public art project ‘HappyCloud’ in which he released thousands of smiley faced clouds made from soap and helium from Tate Modern towards the city of London. A public art project that has since been repeated in Milan during Salone De Mobile, Moscow & Dublin. Other public artworks have included ‘Jump’ for the City of Melbourne in which he installed a giant inflatable bouncy sculpture in Federation Square and ‘My Happy Place’ for Coventry Center for Contemporary Art.

Semple regularly participates in curated group shows, fairs, biennials and charity projects, through which his works have been exhibited at ICA, Victoria Miro, The Goss-Michael Foundation, Sotheby’s, Sammlung Fide, The Fine Art Society, Torrance Art Museum, Pallant House, and the Museum of Art and Design, NYC.

Stuart Semple was born in 1980 in Bournemouth, Dorset. He studied advanced Art & Design at Poole then Painting & printmaking at Bretton Hall in Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Whilst studying for his BA he suffered a sudden near death experience, which led to a prolific period of art creation as catharsis, during which he produced over 3,000 works on paper during just three years, which were made available to collectors worldwide via the early internet. This project ultimately lead to early exhibitions in disused buildings in London. Semple currently lives and works in Dorset, England.
