SIMON JAMES CROSSLEY

Hi, I’m Simon James Crossley. a contemporary artist based in Chortlon, South Manchester, where I live with my wife, dog Buddy and my 2 cats. I create pop art portraits, conceptual & abstract art from my studio at the Northern Renaissance Studios in Central Chorlton.

MY WORK

My current work explores relationships between physical and digital worlds. My  ‘Sparkle Emotion’ series features illuminating glitter FX that reflect and change appearance under different lighting conditions.

These pieces need to be physically seen by the eye to be fully appreciated and are created to be purposefully contrasting to digital artwork, that must be viewed on a screen.

MY STORY

I have always been an artist; from waking up early on Sunday mornings at the age of 6 to draw Nike Airs from a catalogue, to completing huge commissions for international companies. I have an undeniable passion to create.

After a recent ‘awakening’ in Columbia and Peru, after hiking the Inca Trail, I am now fully focussed on making the most amazing artwork.

MY INSPIRATION

My inspiration comes everywhere; people expressing themselves in different ways, visual artists, musicians, science and nature.

Leonardo Da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Picasso, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, John Lennon, Radiohead, are, in my opinion the greatest of artists.
