Bio

Hailing from humble beginnings, Symble was born & raised in south London. Whilst his brothers would play football, the six-year-old spent his time painting cartoon characters and even won local art competitions during primary school.

Symble has honed his self-taught skills for the past 15 years focusing on his passion for art. Symble’s striking style recently caught the attention of one of Britain’s greatest blue-chip artists, Damien Hirst, who has supported the artist by recently adding some of Symble’s artwork to his personal art collection.

His talents have also been appreciated on the international art fair circuit with his work exhibited at Art Basel Miami 2019.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

The fruit and tape in question was the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, and it literally is just a banana duct-taped to a wall, titled “The Comedian” which appeared at the Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition 2019 formed the inspiration for Symble to recreate a large painting on canvas especially as Damien Hirst was denied buying one as it had already sold. However, subsequently has bought a number of Symble works featuring the taped bananas which forms a theme through his recent collection – its all bananas (which some might sight commenting on today’s artworld).
