Artist list

Charles Simmonds
Where are you based and What brought you there?
I live in Berlin, I came kind of on a whim from Brazil, I had been living pretty remotely & nomadically & I had an urge to be somewhere more connected, where I could really start to flourish creatively, I heard Berlin was the place, & upon arriving I became pretty quickly captivated by the city & the people I met here. Somewhere where I could really start to flourish creatively.

Most influential person in your life?
There aren’t many people in my life at the moment. Certainly no one in my immediate physical reality that is influencing me much. Many things influence me.
I suppose you mean artistically?
Emotionally?
John Coltrane influences me,
I listened to his great opus - Giant steps again yesterday, this music always moves me.
Also the music of John Frusciante is a great influence on my work,
in particular his albums - Niandra Lades & Usually Just A T Shirt & Smile From The Streets You Hold.
Kerouac influences me, his work is pure soul.

About Charles Simmonds
Born in 1989 London, Charles Simmonds is a multidisciplinary artist specialising in painting, drawing, photography & writing. Now based in Berlin the artist channels all aspects of what interests him & what pulls at his soul strings into his work. From ancient philosophy, science, history, astronomy, deep space, the human form, inner & outer interactions, to emotional everything's, flowing poetic prose & humorous observations on the outer & inner worlds. Solitary insanity in the awareness of all things being obscurely painful & beautiful is at the centre of the artists work.
