Art Lounge International galleries is proud to be representing dynamic cityscape artist Simon Wright.
Born in West Yorkshire in 1974. Simon recalls "from as early as I can remember I have always been drawing and painting, and it's been my sole passion all my life." After gaining a degree as an illustrator I began to realise I enjoyed more fine art painting as it didn't have the restraints of illustrative work. Through this I gained success painting animals, particularly dogs, I also started to do more portraiture work."
"In my work I try to bring the elements of illustration and fine art together to hopefully create a style which is totally unique and appeals to a varied audience. I enjoy working from, realistic to abstract and everything in between. I work predominantly in oils, and acrylic. I am always grateful that I am able to make a living out of my love of painting."
Simon Wright's new evocative brail like textured works use a dripping process, of enamel and household gloss paints admits a back ground of wash colours so a real sense of depth and perspective is achieved.
