Simon Burton currently lives and works in London. He graduated with a Master's Degree in painting from the Royal College of Art, London. He received the Birtle prize for painting, the ARCO studios award, Lisbon, Portugal, the John Minton Travel award, The Jenny Hall scholarship. For an extended period of time, he worked in the USA. Burton's paintings explore the complexity, mystery and uncertainty of the individual's experience in the modern world. His painting is always on a threshold, on an edge of realization. This vulnerability of the image and the anxiety of its existence are at the core of his painting. His work has been collected widely, both in the UK and abroad. In October 2017, Burton was in an exhibition of Contemporary Masters from Britain in Nanjing, China.
