A celebrity who doesn’t use her name for fame in the art game: Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s son Rocco, whom Page Six can exclusively reveal is represented by a London gallery under the pseudonym Rhed – and sells already paintings touching on “celebrity and label fixation”, for thousands of dollars.

“Rhed is an emerging young artist with diverse and unconventional cultural backgrounds,” explains the artist’s biography on London gallery Tanya Baxter Contemporary website. “His childhood was spent between New York and London, which gave him an eclectic and diverse artistic training.

His first exhibition at the gallery was in July 2018, with an exit at the time saying, “Now based in London and frequenting Central Saint Martins, he has embraced a new genre of DIY art with an expressionist verve and a street energy. It’s no surprise that he first tried graffiti and his work certainly has hints of Basquiat and Banksy.

Rocco graduated in fine arts from Central Saint Martins. And it has been reported that “he takes inspiration from graffiti artist Banksy and sees himself as a key player in the London art scene in a few years”.

Rocco also had an exhibition this summer at the gallery, which Madonna and Guy attended. The UK press noted that the exes, who split in 2008, were both there, along with Madonna’s adopted children, Mercy and Davis, but didn’t realize they were seeing Rocco’s show.

There was also a private dinner for his work at this month’s Art Basel in Miami.

Rocco’s coins are listed on Artsy for up to £ 24,000.

“Social conflicts such as obsession with social media, celebrity and label fixation, and generational issues such as drug addiction and depression are topics he tackles in a coded fashion,” the rest of the biography explains. on the gallery website describing his work. “It’s almost as if the artist is using the paints to serve as a voice for the millennial generation who overdosed on a toxic society.”

Representatives of the gallery and Madonna did not respond to requests for comment.
