British contemporary artist, Simon Claridge blurs the line between fantasy and reality, bringing the shimmering essence of old Hollywood glamour to Box Galleries from 3rd-31st October 2019. His new exhibition of iconic diamond-dust works also sees the launch of his new print, Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend, Fuchsia, which is a large-scale, gloriously pink silkscreen diamond dust Marylin Monroe, and a step away from his iconic black and white palette.
The celebration of female beauty is central to Claridge’s work. This new show is laden with the opulence, glamour and inimitable style of some of the most influential figures that the entertainment industry has ever known, including Marylin Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn and Raquel Welch.
He may count Hollywood A-listers like Claudia Schiffer and Rod Stewart among his collectors, but behind his dazzling artworks lies the hard work and determination that propelled him to success.
