London based artist Joe Simpson creates cinematic style portraits of British actors, musicians and 1980’s vintage action figures. Taking his inspiration from pop culture and infusing that with his knowledge of how the old masters viewed lighting, Joe has developed a rather distinct style and a strong online following.
He chats to Robert about his ‘ACT’ series, nostalgia and how he became an artist.
