Self-taught British Pop Artist who hit global headlines yet again with his street art of Superman kissing Batman is back in London with a new ground breaking exhibition. After cracking America and exhibiting in New York and Los Angeles, Simmons’ work is now in some of the best known international collections and has celebrity collectors around the world.
In collaboration with RISEgallery, Simmons brings his unique contemporary pop art paintings to 90 Piccadilly, Park Lane for a week long pop up exhibition. Simmons has proved himself time and again to be one of the most exciting talents in British art and this new body of work is seen as his strongest collection to date.
Rich Simmons is a Contemporary Urban Pop Artist from London who has exhibited all over the world. Raising to fame with an iconic piece of street art of Will and Kate before the royal wedding, Rich has gone on to exhibit in some of the biggest galleries in London, Geneva, Tampa, New York and LA. As a self taught artist, Rich has taken his love of different genres of art, from street art, pop art and comic books to pioneer a new fusion style which draws on all of his inspirations.
The use of his bold colour palette, hand drawn and hand cut stencils and reclaimed billboards that have been pulled down from the streets are proving Rich is both an innovator and highly collectable artist. Fans and collectors include Royalty, Celebrities, Musicians and is collected as far as New York, Singapore, Baku, Paris, Dubai, Monaco, Geneva, London and Miami.
“The art itself could very well be described as a successful fusion. His representations of familiar figures, both real and fictional, allow Simmons to construct narratives, sometimes in only a single frame. What Rich Simmons produces is definitely art, from the street to the gallery enthusiasts of all stripes respond to his work. Simmons is proving that passion, dedication and a wide variety of influences can create engaging cross-cultural art.”
