Patrick Simkins
(29 years old. Born in United Kingdom. Lives in: Coventry)
Coventry University

Moving from quiet old Surrey to a place like Coventry is some difference. Rather than moan about the city like some of my peers, I've painted imaginatively the urban space in which I've lived, my aim is to inject freshness into a world that can appear stale and mundane. An important characteristic of my work is that I ultimately allow the medium to shape the final imagery on the canvas and the energy that I bring to my paintings is an important element of their production.

Work of art I would like to make

I would like to make a large (8ft x 12ft) oil canvas painting of a major city that is currently going through major changes to its skyline. From direct observation, my imagination and if possible, the projected plans for the finished work, I will paint an energetic, colourful and vibrant projection of the envisioned urban space.
The city does not have to be in the UK as this would subsequently portray a more 'worldly' entity. For example, cities in India and China are getting larger day by day.
Having made paintings this size before, I know its production would be well under £1000.
