Painting Portrait By Joe Simpson

Joe Simpson (born 4 May 1984) is an English figurative painter based in London. His work draws influences from cinematography to create frozen scenes detached from a wider context. His work has been shown internationally, including venues such as the House of Commons, Air Gallery, The Hospital (Covent Gardens) and Manchester City Art Gallery.
In 2009 Simpson’s first major exhibition ‘Almost There’ launched. Simpson collaborated with twelve bands and solo artists (including The Miserable Rich, Nizlopi, The Voluntary Butler Scheme, New Cassettes and Jose Vanders) to create a series of paintings that have an accompanying original soundtrack. Each painting had a song written specifically for that piece, inspired by the scene and composed to compliment the mood of the image. The paintings were exhibited with headphones beside them, so that you could simultaneously listen to the music and view the image. The visual and audio components come together to create one new piece of art.
