Simon McLean has a playful approach to art that begins with the fantastical depths of the unconscious. His works display deft graphic skills, with an underlining sense of humour finely honed over many years of working in the publishing and advertising industries both in Australia and internationally.

Simon has also successfully developed and illustrated his own children’s book ranges and a myriad of illustration projects.

Simon’s art on paper, canvas and also sculpture continues to be applauded for its originality and eclectic themes and has been described as anything from dark and moody to hilariously disturbing.

His vision is one of a universe where frailty and humour collide, where the exaggerated is normal and where the sky is perpetually aglow. So strong is his imagery that his works become so beautifully luminous that they embed themselves in the viewers mind in nothing less than technicolor.
