    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.

    Royer has had solo exhibitions in London, Denver and Brighton and has works in both private and corporate collections worldwide. He has exhibited at Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) and the Royal Society of Oil Painters (ROI) Annual Exhibitions at the Mall Galleries in London. In 2013 he was finalist in the BBC Wildlife Art Competition and in 2014 he exhibited at the prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Art Exhibition.
