Next, blue was thrown with a broom, followed by white thrown from a tube.
Based in: Berlin
Simon Findlay’s practice based approach to painting and performance reflects his focus on colour and intense physicality.
He has thrown rocks in a snow storm whilst wearing only short shorts, painted using only blue for a year, used brooms to make paintings, ripped canvases apart to then staple them back together, thrown paint inside a transparent cube with accompanying musicians, performs live techno/performance art music, and builds immersive art experiences.
He is based in Berlin, Germany since 2016. Prior to this he was in Melbourne, Australia where he threw live music events, toured in bands and studied science/psychology.
