Simon Williamson

- About the Artist


Artist Statement


Just like a musician blends sound to produce music, Simon layers and blends
images, shapes and colours to form visual compositions. He aims to create the
extraordinary out of the ordinary and creates work using mainly photographs and
3-D computer graphics. Each image is designed from original concept to finished
artwork, each element placed to tell part of the story. The images contain bright
colours and are highly detailed with each element having meaning and purpose.

The work is created using digital medium with Apple MacIntosh Computers.
Simon has built up an in-depth knowledge of this medium.

The perception of Digital Art as a true art form has gained recognition as many
well known artists have embraced the digital medium from David Hockney to
Gilbert and George.

You will see from the following pages, that the images are complex in their
construction and combine many elements and concepts. The early works were all
created using Adobe Photoshop before switching to Pixelmator and Affinity
Design / Photo, but the processes for each software package is similar.
