My name is Simon Bird, I am an artist from the Jurassic Coast in the United Kingdom.
After graduating from Cheltenham College of Art, I tried to escape the responsibility of getting a proper job by travelling around the world. This went on for roughly the next twenty years!
On my adventures I encountered various indigenous tribes, and my painting became focused on their struggles to adapt to an ever modernising world. This has led me to develop a more open and less inhibited approach to art.
More recently I have been exploring the medium of animated documentary film making, and also doing some writing and sketching about alternative social structures.
