Mr. S. F. Simon's
versatility can be compared with the seven notes of Music - a painter, singer, writer,
actor, costume designer, director and a tennis player, he has strived and achieved
perfection in whatever he has taken up. To top it all, he is an excellent teacher.
Mr. Simon has spent the major part of his
life in Vizag. His interest in painting stems from the deep rooted artist that he is. This
in-born talent he pursued in his leisure hours, in addition to holding a responsible
position in Coromandel fertilizers.
His paintings, vibrant with depth and life,
are done in shades of greens and browns, true to his Taurian element - the Earth. The
insight into life and its intricacies as displayed
in his paintings bestows on the viewer
an inner peace and serenity.
