Born in Wellington, Simon McIntyre was raised in a home in which art was part of family life.


From an early age he was encouraged to look for the structural elements and balance of colours in a landscape and by watching his father he became familiar with the act of painting and qualities of oil paint. 


Simon completed art school at University of Canterbury and RMIT University, Melbourne. His work focuses on painting’s relationship to abstraction and the nuance of gesture.
