Patrick Simkins - b.1986 - is a British visual artist based in Paris. As a painter, he has had solo and group exhibitions in France, Germany, and the UK. His paintings are held in public and private collections in Europe, the US, and Australia.  As an interactive performance artist, his live drawing collaborations have been hosted in galleries, festivals, and performance venues including the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith and the Palais des Beaux Arts, Lille.

Working in two and three-dimensional painting and collage, I’m interested in portraying human fragility in both the real and virtual worlds.
I do this through imagery rearranged to create fictional scenes that comment on the pursuit of perfection and life's anxieties.
The pattern of destruction and renewal is intrinsic to my process. It's reflected in my use of recycled paintings to create new works and in erasing and redrawing marks during my interactive drawing performances.
