THE ARTIST

Gary Simon is a British artist who began painting in watercolours following a successful international career in the City of London. Unconstrained by convention, he is a self-taught artist who blends his passion for the watercolour medium with a burning desire to capture the joy and soul of contemporary Judaism.

The subject matter is Jewish Art - a celebration of Jewish life and Yiddishkeit. Gary Simon uses the fluidity, vibrancy and unpredictability of the watercolour and other water-based media to shine a light on Jewish culture and practice. In some small way Gary seeks to keep the flame of Judaism burning through his uniquely expressive art.

A prolific painter, his work is in private collections around the world including the UK, Italy and Australia.
