DJ Simpson is a painter who refers to his own work as 'drawing with electricity'. For Bloomberg SPACE, he will claim the rear gallery and cover its surfaces with his Rococo style grey tone wallpaper, punctuated by engraved mirror pieces. With a nod to the Baroque master Tiepolo, Simpson's intricate design will be mechanically produced with raised surface printing. Using wallpaper marks a new departure for Simpson, who is best known for his large scale paintings which reference grand works from the Abstract Expressionist canon, whose influence resonate playfully throughout his work. DJ Simpson was born in 1966 and lives and works in London.
