John Simpson is a contemporary artist based in Bristol in the UK.


His practice is an examination of humankind’s complex relationship with the environment. Instinctive drawing actions and evolving biological forms reveal the similarities between animal and plant life. Patterns appear and repeat from the molecular to the cosmological. A creative symbiosis is achieved through collaboration and live audience engagement which can reveal and explore how humans now relate to the natural world.  


John Simpson has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, London and Sao Paulo.



'John Simpson has a wonderfully fluent and flowing drawing style which lends itself particularly well to his chosen medium, monotypes.


His control of this wayward process is remarkable, and this, combined with his sensitive and poetic imagination and his empathy with his subject matter produces powerful and inforgettable images.'
