Fabien Castanier Gallery would like to thank It's Nice That for featuring Stuart Semple’s recent interview about his artwork and involvement with various charities focused on mental health.
The proceeds from Semple's "MY SONIC YOUTH" soundtrack will go to support CALM (campaign against living miserably). The album is a limited edition vinyl record, which includes a custom soundtrack featuring collaborations with BLACK MOSES, OFFICERS, KARIMA FRANCIS, SAM FORREST (nine black alps), MAXIM (prodigy), ED LAURIE, PAUL FRYER, CHARLOTTE CHURCH, DOUG TIELL, and IAN PICKERING (sneaker pimps). My Sonic Youth is available for pre-order for delivery on or before 12th December.
This solo exhibition is the LA debut for one of the UK’s most significant post YBA artists, Stuart Semple. In My Sonic Youth, Semple uses painting, sculpture, and installation to explore social concepts in addition to dissecting the psychological evolution of youth culture over the course of several decades. The artist illustrates how spaces, communication, and music have changed drastically, forcing a generation of young people into a new kind of isolation. Heavily inspired by the music of his own youth, Semple uses references from music and art history to construct a fluid visual narrative, which tells the tale of a radical social and emotional shift among youth culture.
MY SONIC YOUTH is on view through January 9th. See link below for the full article.
