The Futureheads, have collaborated with iconic artists including David Shrigley, Pete Fowler and Stuart Semple to create a series of limited edition prints, raising money for Newcastle based charities with all of the artists generously giving their time for free. The project came about as the band discussed ways to celebrate their 10th birthday, ahead of their ‘Futurefest’ gig on the 23rd December in Newcastle. For the ‘FH10’ project the band sent each one of the artists an album, and asked them to respond to its music as if creating the album cover for the first ever time.
Stuart Semple is one of the most critically and commercially successful British artists of the post YBA generation. He has been recognized by The Times, i-D, BBC, Esquire, GQ, L’Uomo Vogue, Art News, ArtForum and others. Stuart’s works can be found in the Getty, Niarchos and David Roberts collections. He also counts Debbie Harry, Sienna Miller and Jean Charles de Castelbajac amongst his celebrity collectors and supporters. Semple regularly exhibits worldwide.
He has been producing art since the age of three and his abilities were recognized and encouraged early on by his parents and teachers. During his childhood he won several art prizes including a prize where he switched on the Christmas lights in the small seaside town of Bournemouth where he was born and raised.
