By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the second of two 12-piece Exhibitions of works by Canadian
contemporary Impressionist painter Brian Simons (born 1951 Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada).
A self-taught artist, Brian derived much of his inspiration from the “Group of Seven,” the French Impressionists and the Writings of Baha'u'lla'h (Baha'i Faith). He and his family moved to Vancouver Island from Alberta, where he first began to paint, approximately 30 years ago. Prior to that, he focused mostly on drawing and sketching.
Brian began showing his work in 1988 and has been represented by numerous galleries on the Island. From 1993-2000, he painted on a full-time basis and had many successes and
confirmations in that period, including numerous commissions for a television production company, commission work for architects, several corporate and private sales both in Canada and the United States.
Brian’s work is represented By Kamp Galleries, Chicago, IL; Flamingo Gallery, Palm Springs, FL; Southshore Gallery, Sooke, B.C. and Art Rental Program, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

Feature Artist Bio
December 14, 2014
"In my work, I attempt to express something more than the physical aspects of the subject. It is not my intent to portray accurately what I see, but rather to allow what I see to show itself to me. My part is to freely, and joyously paint and let the results take care of themselves.
Possibly, the real fruit of painting or art, is that it has the power to awaken the sleeping artist within each of us, thus creating new possibilities for seeing and appreciating the beauty which surrounds us."
