Simon Wright was born in Yorkshire in 1974. Graduating from university with a degree in illustration, Simon quickly became a full-time artist. Simon still lives in North England but takes many trips across the country to gain inspiration from other cities.
Simon’s subject range is broad, ranging from Contemporary cityscapes of New York and London to urban images depicting bears rummaging through London bins to a jockey racing. His paintings are layered with thick impasto and vibrant colors. His style is reminiscent
of the textures and colors applied by the Impressionists. Like Van Gogh, he is loose with his paintbrush but creates a controlled and perfect outcome. Wright’s landscapes are often combined of two prominent colors. The background of his cityscapes often blue, giving the forefront yellows a vibrant impact.
Despite his paintings being intentionally realistic, Simon often adds other details into the piece to create a sense of city rather than a particular place. Wright has been painting for years and exhibits with galleries around the UK. His work has been bought from collectors worldwide. If you are ever looking for a particular scene, Simon is the perfect artist to create exactly what you want!
