Brian SimonsBiography: Being a self-taught artist, I have derived much of my inspiration from the "GROUP OF SEVEN", the French Impressionists and the Writings of Baha'u'lla'h (Baha'i Faith). My family and I moved to Vancouver Island from Alberta, where I first began to paint approx. 20 years ago. Prior to that, I focused mostly on drawing and sketching. I began showing my work in 1988 and have been represented by numerous galleries on the Island. From 1993-2000, I painted on a full-time basis and have had many successes and confirmations in that period, including numerous commissions for a television production company, commission work for architects, several corporate and private sales both in Canada and the United States. The artwork consists of bold, colorful landscape, marine, floral, cityscape and still life paintings. Most paintings are acrylic although many are oils. Country: Canada Birthyear: 1951 Galleries: Kurbatoff Gallery, Vancouver Willow Gallery, Toronto South Shore Gallery , Vancouver Island Awards: numerous jury awards chosen as B.C. representative for International Art Symposium , Quebec, 2004 Media: acrylic, oil Style: expressionistic, impressionistic Subjects: landscapes and nature, cityscapes
