Rhys started his career as a graphic artist working for bands and record labels as a poster and merchandise designer after co-founding an artists collective called BRAG (British Rock Artist Group) that specialised in screen-printed gig posters. Since then he has exhibited internationally in America and Europe at poster shows such as Flatstock and worked with galleries hosting print making workshops. He has posters and prints in the V&A museum and was featured in a book about British posters published by the museum. In 2010 he ran his own pop-up art gallery in Brighton that showcased screen-printed artwork from an international platform. Currently Rhys is working as a freelance artist and printmaker.
