Simon WG Butler was born in 1989 in Maidstone, UK, and now lives and works in London. He primarily works with retired postage stamps, manipulating their depictions of historical events to explore a variety of viewpoints and theories of particularly contentious subjects. His work also expresses a mourning of the physical, tangible forms of communication that are being lost as society moves into an increasingly digital age.
He has previously exhibited internationally in London, Miami and Chicago and worked alongside the likes of D*Face, Steve Lazarides and Shepard Fairey.
Vertical Gallery is very proud to present Butler's first solo exhibition, "Going Postal", December 12, 2015 - January 2, 2016. Click here for more details.
