Passionate Oil Painter - Simon Birch

Simon Birch paints like everything else he does in life - with passion. The faces on his subjects are intense, yet non-specific in their expression, leaving viewers to their own subjective interpretation.

Born in Brighton, England, Simon left the UK to spend time traveling through Australia before relocating to Hong Kong in the mid-nineties.

Birch describes himself as an artist immersed in street and eastern culture, a catalyst for many forms of creativity, an artist reacting to the fragmented perception of the everyday world, saturated with images. Inspiration for his paintings may be triggered by the smallest detail - a color, face, texture, sound, or song. Once he has that spark, he begins painting as soon as possible, compulsively, often for days at a time with little or no rest.
