“During the pandemic, I had a chance to pull decades of my art out of storage and it reignited my passion for drawing and painting again,” Kiss bassist says
Gene Simmons ArtWorks, showing October 14th to 16th at the Venetian’s Animazing Gallery, will feature sketches, drawings, and paintings created over the last 50 years.
“Moving to the United States from Israel as a young boy, I didn’t speak English. I fell in love with comics and American television, and they not only helped me learn the language but inspired creativity and a passion for drawing and painting” Simmons said in a statement.
“I started doodling and drawing when I was eight years of age and as a teenager, I had hundreds of illustrations [under the name Gene Klein] published in fanzines created by and for sci-fi and comic book enthusiasts.”
