Morgan Howell (AKA @SuperSizeArt) is a British artist, living and working in St Albans, Hertfordshire just outside London.
Morgan is best known for his giant (SuperSize) 3D facsimiles of classic 7” singles. Morgan’s hand-painted works take into account every crease, every tear, every imperfection – producing a one-off, truly unique artwork, almost identical to the owner’s original 45, but blown up, supersize and three-dimensional, with the spindle in the centre, as if the record is ready to play.
This completely original approach has resulted in Howell attracting a cult following amongst art collectors and musicians alike – with paintings commissioned by Neil Diamond, Jude Law, Edgar Wright, Lord Lloyd-Webber and Ian Brown, and major music labels selecting the artist’s work for display in their headquarters.
Morgan’s father, Ralph, was also an artist and Morgan remembers as a child helping his father sell his paintings on a stall in St Albans traditional street market.
As a self-confessed vinyl addict and music lover growing up in the 70s and 80s, it is perhaps unsurprising that Morgan’s art has gravitated towards these iconic images of treasured discs.
Morgan has exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, curated by Grayson Perry and a committee of fellow Royal Academians, and also at the Q Awards, one of the most hedonistic dates on the rock calendar. He has permanent exhibits at BBC Radio 2 and The Barbican Centre, London.
