Paintings and Fine-Art.

Figurative Paintings by Simon Birch

Simon Birch is a UK born painter and multimedia artist living and working in Hong Kong. I am looking at his large scale figurative oil on canvas paintings in particular now I’m starting a new project that’s based on the human body. Evidently it’s a lot easier to find figurative paintings I like than sculptures considering I have very little interest in anything neoclassical – art that’s too realistic just creeps me out a little. I have limited appreciation for the male form (I think Andrew Salgado is about the only artist who can make the male body seem attractive to me) so his use of the female form, the beautiful colours and suggestion of movement is just everything I love.
