Being able to make faceless figures still emit strong, intense emotion is what Simon Birch Paintings are aptly able to demonstrate.

His paintings depict women levitating while doing what could be a form of dance and aerobics. Some of his images show faceless figures that somehow attract the attention of many. The UK-born artist, who now resides in Hong Kong, is able to illustrate varied images that grip your mind's eye. Such remarkable talent is uncovered in this artist's ability to use simple imagery to communicate complex emotions.

He has recently worked on large projects like the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts that brings out the artist in him. Being able to precisely sketch figures in oil paintings while strongly holding on to the theme of disproportion and balance is highly admirable.
