Neil Simone is an artist based in Yorkshire, England, who plays with perspective in order to create surreal paintings that play tricks on the mind. More often than not his work revolves around natural landscapes. For instance, Neil Simone allows the outdoors blend into indoor rooms in some cases while others involve a canvas impossibly interacting with the real world (or the real world according the artist, that is).

Dream-like and imaginative, Neil Simone's paintings encourage people to view the world outside of its physics-based box. He writes, "I paint the way that I do because I see the world as a dimension of shadows, shapes, contradictions and ever changing fragile boundaries." His work is displayed across the UK, Europe and USA.
