I am currently so super smitten with the art of Simon Degroot. Simon is a Brisbane independent artist and a prolific participant in community and public art projects around town, with six years of extensive solo and group exhibitions around Australia. Simon employs strong imagery and his work has often been described as graffiti like in style. I'd simply describe it as fanflipintastic! Simon will be launching his self-published artist book featuring a range of artworks and critiques as part of his upcoming exhibition of latest works titled The Happy Mad at Cylinder in Fortitude Valley. I can't wait for this one! Only one more day. It opens tomorrow. Woohoo!

"My artworks are about personal development, about reaching into memories and experiences to try and better understand my place and myself. Through my works I try to find a balance between inside imaginations and outside realities" - Simon Degroot.
The Happy Mad exhibition from 2nd May until 9th June at Cylinder
