About Liam Symes

Liam Symes is currently based in the South West of England. Symes began developing his artistic ideas during his studies and further expanded his knowledge and inspiration by engaging with other artists, particularly contemporary painters.

After completing his degree in Fine Art in 2013, Symes made the decision to continue his artistic practice. His primary focus has been on exploring themes that evoke concepts of memory, isolation, and serenity. These themes are recurring elements in his work and serve as a foundation for his artistic expression.

Symes employs various techniques and approaches to bring these themes to life on canvas. His work may involve the use of color, texture, composition, and other visual elements to create a mood or atmosphere that resonates with the viewer.
