Symon Leech - Brambledown Designs

June 20, 2019

Once upon a time little Symon had to make a choice. Granted, he wasn’t so little but he was still at school and he had to choose between Science and Art, what would it be?  Well he chose Science, it seemed that more money could be made being a scientist than an artist; it was the 80’s afterall!

Back then it seemed to him that Science and Art didn’t mix but he brings a certain amount of experimentation to his artwork, taking a bit from column A and a bit from column B to see what happens, what could be more scientific?  This can make for an eccentric approach to his work, for instance using smashed vinyl records to make portraits of rock stars or using old books as the backdrop for literary characters.

The subject matter is similarly eclectic, with some  traditional art but more often than not he veers off into the geeky wastelands of a galaxy far, far, away.  He says “What I do makes me happy, I hope it does the same for others” and you can’t ask for much more than that.
