The Art of Simon Bartram
24 April - 12 May 2013
Simon Bartram is a profoundly talented artist, whose ability springs from his northern
roots as a fine artist to a lucrative and increasingly successful career as an author and book illustrator. We are proud to throw a spotlight on the dual aspect of his creativity as an increasingly sought-after artist, who has quietly gained serious respect from collectors and publishers alike. Born in Jarrow and living in Newcastle, Simon draws inspiration from a rich heritage. His fine art paintings pay homage to heroes like Stanley Spencer, and engage us in a gritty urban realism of Newcastle life. As a whole-hearted supporter of Sunderland AFC his work is inspired by the energy and passions of his Tyneside home.
Alongside this we highlight his work as an author/illustrator and creator of Bob Man on the Moon. This impressively successful series attracts an international audience and has pinned Simon on the international publishing map. In both disciplines technical mastery and rich ability affords Simon virtuosity of execution and a uniqueness of vision, infused with intuitive sensitivity and the infamous northern humour. We commend his work to those with illustration and fine art collections.
