RIGHT ON WRITERS BLOCK:

THE HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL PAINTINGS OF PEPIJN SIMON

There's a wonderful artist whose work stirs all kinds of emotions within me. His name is Pepijn 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."

This guy is up there with the greats.

I can't wait for his work to be featured in the United States.

"The paintings of Pepijn Simon"

Article by Sarah Wasko

Monster Children was founded in 2003 in Sydney, Australia, as an alternative to the standard action sports titles in the market, expanding the content of traditional surf and skate magazines into art, photography, design and music and forever changing the genre.

Since its inception, articles on surfers and skaters have featured alongside interviews with ground breaking artists, photographers, filmmakers and musicians.

In 2010, a US edition was launched with offices established in Los Angeles and New York, and now in 2013 Monster Children is stronger than ever, having become a leader in youth lifestyle publishing the world over.

DISCLAIMER MAGAZINE:

TENEBRISM LIVES ON THROUGH THE POWERFUL ABSTRACTION OF PEPIJN SIMON

The Tenebrist works of 17th century Italian and Spanish masters live on through the dark and sometimes disturbing work of Pepjin Simon, the Netherlands-born artist who has only recently started sharing his paintings with the world.

Born in 1967, Simon attended the Fotoacademie Amsterdam, but soon felt constrained by photography and moved towards painting in search of greater artistic expression.

With the black paint of the background still wet, Simon uses old credit cards rather than brushes to craft powerful images, exploring how far he can go in eliminating details from the face without losing recognition. These barely recognisable faces are are born of a clash between realism and abstraction. He applies the white paint to his black backgrounds without sketches or photographs in order to catch the emotions of his subject in that moment. That, says Simon, is how he conveys emotion in his work.
