THE HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL PAINTINGS OF PEPIJN SIMON
Enough of that.
There's a wonderful artist whose work stirs all kinds of emotions within me. His name is Peijn Simon and he's from the Netherlands. Simon turned to photography as a means to escape his turbulent childhood, but he quickly switched to painting.
What's amazing about his work is that he doesn't use a paintbrush. He uses old twisted credit cards. According to www.monsterchildren.com, "He begins with a black painted canvas and paints while it’s still wet. He applies the white paint without any sketching or use of photographs."
You can read more about Simon here, and if you fall in love with his work, you can actually purchase his paintings. This guy is up there with the greats. I can't wait for his work to be featured in the United States.
