Hot New Artist, What do you think?

The hottest thing to hit the art world is here, and everyone is talking about him! Who? Stuart Semple.


Stuart is a fresh face at only 27. He is British, which you know, that accent alone makes him worth checking out. Not only that, but he has caught the eye of celebrities like Johnny Depp, Sienna Miller, Boy George and Debbie Harry, who are lining up for his work, which by the way doesn't come quick or cheap! There's a 24 month waiting list for his pictures which can sell for up to quarter of a million dollars.

Okay, so he may be the fresh new face of the art world, but at these prices, he is way out of my league. Of course, once an artist gets noticed by the celebs, it is only a matter of time before the prices of their work jumps out of reach of the masses. Good for him, not so good for the rest of us.

What makes him different, you ask? Well, first off his painting are gigantic. And he has a talent of mixing song lyrics with cartoons and a slick fashion shoot style imagery altogether to make a wonderful new painting. Something different and forward, hip and happening and upand coming in the world.
