Pepijn Simon

Pepijn Simon is an artist from the Netherlands. He studied photography at Fotoacademie Amsterdam and fine art at the art academy. His paintings are an experiment to see how much one can eliminate from the face without losing recognition. He states, “We are all programmed to see faces and to recognize emotion in them. However, ultimately a combination between realism and abstraction is needed to portray an emotion. In my works, it is clear that these are human figures, however everybody will view the characters differently.” For Simon, his old masters painting are an attempt to give historic paintings an update in today’s time and an examination of the choices made by its creators. He has exhibited in London and at the Rotterdam International Fair.
