Powerful & Colorful Art from Simon Birch

by Daniel Haim

Back in 2009 I had the chance to catch up with the British painter who currently resides in Hong Kong, China. Simon Birch is an impressive, self-thaught artist and it is a privilege to see how is art has progressed over the years. I can literally see the growth and maturity seeping through the color palette and contours of his powerful and colorful portraits. His use of the spatula especially, lends his work a feeling of verve and spontaneity.
