After years of painting his face, Gene Simmons has moved on to a more durable medium: canvas. The KISS singer-bassist has reached an agreement with the Animazing Gallery — located inside Las Vegas’ Venetian Resort — that will see his original artwork displayed in a two-day exhibit that’s set to open October 14th, Simmons reveals.

“Moving to the United States from Israel as a young boy, I didn’t speak English,” Simmons says. “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. With the KISS “End Of The Road’ tour taking a pause 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.”

Do you think Simmons’ artwork might appeal to people who aren’t KISS fans? Will KISS fans even be interested?
