Simon Dark is a self taught artist and photographer from South Wales, UK. Creating work using a range of materials, so as not to restrict his creative process, Simon likes to experiment and continually develop his artistic style. Work created by Simon includes the use of spray paint, loose ink and paints, experimentation with guns, stencils and freehand style to create art. Having exhibited hiswork ata number of U.K. galleries, Simon is currently preparing for his first solo exhibition and has a joint exhibition with iconic founder of UK Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake later this year. Simon also has a series of artwork which he secretly exhibits around the world.
The accidental shot series is an ongoing collection of work, taking aim at authors, politicians and iconic portraits. Inspired by the artwork of Hunter S Thompson and William Burroughs. I have experimented with fire arms, inks and paints to create these pieces. Buy the ticket take the ride, res ipsa loquitur.
