Based in: Bern
Maximo Simon creates flowing and structured works of art. He immerses himself in the matter and lets himself be guided emotionally through the textures and chemical processes. His goal is to arouse emotions in the eyes of the viewer. He likes the different haptic and sensual feelings of the materials and brings them together in a limited space to create a work. His work is also inspired by the Japanese motto "Wabi-Sabi". It signifies the love for the imperfection, impermanence and irregularity of nature.
His works address the changes and fascination of nature and relate to environmental awareness. He pursues environmentally conscious approaches such as the series "Fire" and "Australian Desert Ground", which refers to the drying up of the earth and the signal of bush fires. For him, nature has also its own body language. Also are structures in his pictures important to him. These show the fragility, but also the strength of life and the diversity of nature.
Maximo Simon has exhibited in New York City, Venice, Bern and Zurich. His works can also be seen in an art museum in Chongqing in Sommer and autumn 2022. He is also represented at art fairs, including the International Art Fair Lausanne. He received his last commission from Five Global Holding from Dubai, where Maximo Simon is implementing an art commission for a planned 5***** luxury hotel in Zurich. In January 2021 he was voted "Artist of the Month" by It's Liquid Group.
