This is Haute by Simon Barrett

This is Haute 
A series of works by artist and illustrator Simon Barrett.
This is Haute is both a study of Haute Couture (high fashion) in form of recognised boot design and an exploration of the perfect balance of shape and colour. 

Each piece attempts to reduce the amount of information on the canvas to create a simple composition of line form, colour and iconic style. The work aims to bring a smile to the viewer, but retain a strong aesthetic sense.  

The study took place over a six month period. 

Barrett has exhibited his work in both Australia and around the world and has been published in leading books and publications both in print and online.

His commercial works span across many disciplines of design and illustration.
Notches on Barrett's belt includes work for clients like Apple, MTV, General Pants and Harpers Bazaar. 

Each work is painted in acrylic paints on linen canvas. 
A six colour hand pulled screenprint is available from Bow and Arrow Store and online.

The exhibition runs from November 11th - December 2017.
