About Liam Symes

Liam Symes is a contemporary painter currently based in the South West of England. Whilst proceeding through his studies, Symes began developing his ideas through painting, consequently engaging more extensively with other artists and finding inspiration from contemporary painters of today. Following completion of his degree in Fine Art in 2013, Symes decided to continue his practice, focusing primarily on exploring themes which evoke concepts of memory, isolation and serenity. These are some of the ongoing themes present in his work today.
