“For me, painting is like exploring some ancient pre-Columbian ruins; it seeks to revisit that which has been long forgotten but nevertheless remains shrouded in mystery.””
Simon Boyd was born in 1978 in London. He is currently painting in Argentina and has exhibited widely; both in Buenos Aires and London. Simon is motivated by childhood memories merged with a sense of mysticism inspired by his natural surroundings 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. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and BTEC Art and Design from Middlesex University.
