    Art Description:

    The Pacific sea nettle or West Coast sea nettle lives in-between the eastern Pacific Ocean from Canada to Mexico. I found this specimen in an aquarium and was taken back by its colours and movement. When I researched, I found that jellyfish have no brains, no bones, no heart and no blood, it really is an extraordinary creature. I have tried to capture the movement, colours and beauty of this magnificent creature in oils which lends itself really well with this style of painting.

    Medium Used: Oil on Canvas


    Simon Royer | United Kingdom

    Simon Royer is an artist with a love of natural history and the environment. Self taught he works in a variety of media, including oils, acrylic paints and sculpture.

    From the earliest fine art paintings depicting accurately realistic representations of birds, to the ethereal, atmospheric quality of the beach scenes, all works depict the almost physical, tactile relationship we have with our world. More often than not Royer’s works contain a story, whether it be an illustration of the Darwinian concept of survival, a visual exploration of the behavioural habits of certain species or a critique of mankind’s depletion of the planet’s natural resources, his interest and concern with the environment is overriding. Royer’s intuitive portrayal of his subject matter and the striking vitality apparent in all his artworks has brought him many admirers and collectors.
