Simon Cooper is a Manhattan based artist working primarily in painting. He earned a B.F.A. in Illustration and Printmaking from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Simon’s work largely focuses on history and references many notable works of art throughout art history. He has exhibited in shows internationally from Greece, Spain and Egypt, and most recently with the Lower East Side gallery and collective Con Artist NYC.
This show exhibits 24 paintings based on the Dutch master painting “As the Old Sing, So Pipe the Young” by Jan Steen. Simon has thoroughly studied and reinterpreted this painting hundreds of times over the years and still finds new styles and techniques to approach it with. It’s a celebration of friends and family and a simple reminder of the good times. More of Simon’s work can be found at www.simoncooperart.com or on instagram @simoncooperart
