Simon Degroot


Simon Degroot (b. 1981 Sydney, Australia) makes paintings and site-specific mural installations using abstraction to build and compose new visual experiences at the intersection of art, design, and architecture. Hard edge forms in flat even colours interact with pre-existing image details, painted foliage, and patterned facades examining the possibilities of everyday surfaces in our environment in their historical and social dimensions.

Simon Degroot was awarded his PhD from Queensland College of Art and Design, Griffith University in 2017 where he is Creative Director of QCAD LiveArt and Lecturer in Visual Art. He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions around Australia and completed large-scale mural installations; his work is held in public and private collections, including: Artbank Australia, Caboolture Regional Art Gallery Queensland, and Lyons House Museum Melbourne.
