Simon Wright

British Artist Simon Wright was born in Yorkshire in 1974. Fuelled with the passion of creating art his entire life, Wright started his artistic career with a degree in illustration. Enjoying working as a professional illustrator, Simon relished being able to earn a living from his talent. Not quite content with the precise controlled style of painting this work demanded, he began to develop a much looser spontaneous style. In the same way the 20th century impressionists allowed colour to form the structure of their art Simon began to revisit famous urban landscapes in an entirely new way. Without any technical restraints Simon began to forge landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Palace of Westminster from just the layering of shadows with colour. Utilising just a few tones Simon would create the impressionistic scene before ‘dribbling’ on the thick structure of the painting. From this point he describes a battle between the layered shadows and the raised structural lines for dominance:

"By having a focal point like the Eiffel Tower or Westminster, I'm trying to have the viewer know instantly where they are in the world, but I don't want that to be the dominant aspect of the piece. I want the painting to speak for itself and the feeling of the city to be portrayed to the viewer."
