Hello! My name is Simon and I am a senior at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. This Blog is a collection of assignments and projects created for my writing 400 class. Below is some more information on myself as an artist, as well as a few links for contacting me or seeing what I do!
Artist Statement Simon Arpin is a Milwaukee sculptor with a love for storytelling. His work references the prop making industry of Hollywood, while elevating these objects to the level of fine art. Each one of Simon’s pieces build a story, and often exist in a larger connected world. His work is often based on realistic or historical objects with hints of science fiction and abstraction. Miniatures are a common motif in his work as well. Simon enjoys when a viewer can take in the minute details and focus on something up close. This experience is heightened by the use of bronze and other metals, which add value and tangibility to his works.
