Simon Boyd

Simon was born in London and is currently living in Argentina.

Simon is motivated by childhood memories merged with a sense of mysticism inspired by his natural surroundings and experiences of South America. Simon seeks to transmit a dream-like nostalgia in his paintings, evoking a sense of the primordial and timeless. His paintings portray arcane tales of conflict, struggles between order and chaos; while pushing the aesthetic extremes of discipline and irreverence.
