Simon Gales

Simon Gales is a British artist who was born in Suffolk, England in 1964 and attended Ipswich School of Art from 1983 - 1985 before going onto Goldsmiths’ College School of Art London 1985 - 1988.

At Goldsmiths, Gales studied under Jon Thompson who on seeing his studio work in the first tutorial, opened Gales’s mind to concept of metaphysics possibly playing a roll in his art. This altered Gales’s thinking and propelled him into a direction that resulted in series of metaphysical still life paintings incorporating banal subject matter but with an emphasis on the ‘power of the everyday object.’ Other notable tutors during this period for Simon Gales were Carl Plackman, Basil Beattie, Brian Falconbridge and art historian Ian Jeffrey.Displaying 750 of 9581 characters.
