The Jesters Tea Party

The Jester’s Tea Party- Si Griffiths

A riotous explosion of colourful lowbrow pop surrealism, exploring the yin and yang of life.

Simon J Griffiths is a self-taught artist influenced by surrealism, lowbrow, street art, tattoo art, fantasy art and comic books. He has drawn and painted sporadically since a teenager, and started painting in earnest 8 years ago after personal trauma and being inspired to paint again by the Visionary artist S V Mitchell.

His work explores the balance of yin and yang in life, often using satire.

He predominantly works in acrylic.
