  • About the Artist
    Born in 1976 in Dublin, Ireland, Simon discovered his love of art at a young age. Following his natural artistic instinct, he acquired techniques and preferences which he relates through his work, encompassing brush and palette knife work, subtle under-painting and graduating alterations in colour.

  • Artist Style
    Simon Kenny is a multi-award-winning artist, celebrated nationally and internationally for his vibrant, expressive paintings.
    His style is best described as ‘lyrical abstraction’; characterised as a ‘radical Turner’, in recent press coverage he has attracted significant attention for his growing collection of ‘colour burst’ paintings.

    Simon’s fascination with the world around him clearly manifests itself through his work, yet no piece is ever site specific. His aim is for the viewer to connect personally with each composition – to be reminded of a place they once knew, or visited by an unexpected moment of emotion.

    Dramatic, atmospheric and totally captivating, Simon’s dynamic abstracts are widely collected by both private and corporate clients located around the globe with an extensive collector base throughout the U.S and Europe. His work has appeared in many prestigious exhibitions and galleries coupled with national tours at select locations.

    “My personality is a big part of how I paint. I do become incredibly emotionally involved with my work, almost treating it as though it’s a living thing connected to me. My mood plays a part in the colours I choose, or the way I use my brushes and knives, and it can certainly affect the direction of the work; that’s what makes it so special to me.”

    Simon's recent feedback from collector Professor Steven Hawking CBE ““It looks like everything about space I cannot explain.”
