imon Kirk’s works are a synergy of poetry and painting, text and image, abstraction and figuration, combining influences from both the literary and art world alike. Influenced by haiku, humanist concerns and the philosophical ideas of ‘the Absurd’, Kirk’s mixed media pieces have become increasingly sought after by art collectors since the beginning of his career in 2007. Kirk has exhibited and sold at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2010, 2013

He has had solo exhibitions in France, Denmark and the USA. simonkirkartist.gallery simon@simonkirkartist.gallery
