ABOUT

Simon Birch is a British-born artist living and working in Hong Kong who is renowned for the kinetic, cinematic quality of his paintings which have been exhibited in solo shows in Beijing, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Miami and Singapore, and in group shows at the Hong Kong Museum of Art, Haunch of Venison, London, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo.

In recent years he has become renowned as the conceptual and creative force behind visionary, large-scale projects involving collaborative work with filmmakers, musicians, performers, designers, and architects to deliver ambitious site-specific projects in specifically configured spaces. His most renowned project to date, The 14th Factory, which became an art world phenomenon as 100,000people were attracted by word of mouth and the power of social media to discover its first outpost in a disused factory in East LA in 2016. Work from the 14th Factory has been bought by private collectors, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and loaned to The SmithsonianInstitute. The upcoming Hong Kong edition of The 14th Factory will be one of the largest independent art experiences in the world, the first project of scale globally post pandemic, cementing Birch as one of the most diversely talented artists of our time.
