Simon Park has been an avid artist his whole life, striving to create a style that is unique, provocative and powerful.
Influenced by modern fantasy films, comics, orchestral scores and rennaissance art, he uses cross-hatching and vivid colours, With a heavy emphasis on dynamics, scale, tiny details and down to earth characters to drive forward the old adage that every picture tells a thousand words.
He does not usually intend a specific story during the creation process, but rather builds an elaborate snapshot for the viewer to imagine a story for.
Many of his works are intended to open dialogue; to embrace or question ideals and ideologies of modern society, and look upon them with new eyes.
He relishes in hiding in plain sight details which the viewer can find upon a second or third viewing.
His time not spent with his partner
and their children, or curled up somewhere drawing, is spent hiking, mountain climbing and meditating.
I do commissions for points too
we think therefore we am, right?
