Original Cycling Art by Simon Taylor
Since my days painting Formula 1 subjects I have become a huge fan of the Tour de France and cycle racing. I watched my first Tour in 2011 when Thomas Voeckler rode a thrilling race wearing the Yellow Jersey for 10 days until succumbing on stage 19, leaving victory to Cadel Evans. I became hooked and Britain has become such a dominant force in road cycling.
I try to capture all the elements that make cycle such a visual spectacle, the landscapes, the vibrant colours and the action, whether it be a high action sprint, or a slow burning climb. My painting style is a contemporary take on the old style posters of the 20's and 30's, although I occassionally paint in the more impressionistic style I developed whilst painting motor racing subjects to the early 2000's.
I hope you enjoy viewing my work online, and if you would like to view any of the pieces or would like to discuss commissioning a simlar work, by all means get in contact vie email or telephone.
