Description

Join London based artist, Joe Simpson, as he celebrates the launch of his new touring exhibition 'ACT'.

Joe approached his favourite British actors to be subjects for his new paintings. He asks each actor - ‘what role have you always wanted to play but have never got the chance?’.

He then created a narrative painting of them depicted as their choice of role on a large wide format canvas. These paintings are not just straight portraits, but show the actors in their craft, acting as a character that they’d love to play.
