About Artist:

Australian artist Richard Simpkin has been photographing celebrities for almost 30 years. Dividing his time between Sydney, Los Angeles & London. He has personally met & photographed over 2000 international celebrities & has exhibited his work worldwide in galleries & photo festivals.


What makes Richard?s Pop Art stand out from many other artists is that he has personally met each celebrity to take their portrait. He then transforms his original images of celebrities into 21st Century Pop Art. Because of this, each piece is unique as Richard is the only one to have access to his celebrity images.


There are over 200 original art pieces in the Snap Crackle And Pop Art collection.

Some of the celebrities in the collection are; Katy Perry, Lady Ga Ga, Bono, Johnny Cash, Clint Eastwood, Taylor Swift, Debbie Harry, Michael Hutchence, Kylie Minogue, Kurt Cobain & Keith Richards to name but a few. Richard has personally met each of these celebrities to take their portrait for these unique Art Pieces.


His work is printed on professional Metallic archival photographic paper which makes the colours literally Pop out of the art.

Each piece is individually hand signed & numbered by Richard Simpkin.


In 2013 he was nominated for the Deutsche B?rse Photography Prize.

The Prize aims to reward a living photographer who has made the most significant contribution to the medium of photography in Europe over the past year.

He is the best selling author of 5 books & is a KeyNote speaker at numerous events globally.

"Richard Simpkin?s work is a true revelation, some people say its populist, but for him to do this, you have to be highly professional, highly trained. He makes it look easy , but we all know its not" - Martin Parr.
