Sim_ultan – Visual artist/graphics

Image Hosted by 

If you can spare a few moments of valuable time, then you could do worse than take a look over at the myspace page of my new friend, Sim_ultan –

I have commissioned him and John Kannenberg to produce cover artwork for the forthcoming WHITE_LINE Editions series of CD’s and artworks. Like Kannenberg, Sim_ultan produces elegant, and highly refined minimalist images in a variety of styles, presumably to suit a varied clientele.  He produces stunning, vector based line works that look like slowly unfolding flowers or bizzarre sea creatures, superbly balanced and restrained linear graphics, and some amazing 3d works too. The work would beautifully grace CD covers, booklets, flyers etc, but I would just love some in large format to hang on the wall. Most of the site is in Italian, but the images alone are worth visiting the site for.  Sim_ultan cites among others Taylor Deupree and Richard Chartier as influences, so you will know he has great taste. I do hope that Sim_ultan displays his work on a website gallery soon, in order to fully appreciate the breadth of his work. Until then, a visit to his myspace site is highly recommended.   BGN


About whiteline1

WHITE_LINE was set up three years ago, in order to play and promote the work of artists and musicians working under the banner of "minimalism", in all its many guises. This has led to a regular and highly successful mix slot on the Garden of Earthly Delights radio show in the UK, and guest appearances on Resonance FM (frequenzen show). We now aim to extend the remit of the mix slots by reviewing (as often as possible) material that encapsulates and crystallises the minimalist ethic, and hopefully we'll be leading artists and audiences alike towards a deeper appreciation of this and other marginalised genres. I welcome your comments, and criticisms, and would love to hear from labels and artists who would like their work showcased on the show, or reviewed here. We regret that due to time constraints, we cannot review everything that is sent to us, but will endeavour to give exceptional work an "honourable mention" at the very least, and links to quality sites that we think worthy of mentioning. I am trying to support labels and artists as much as possible by promoting their work, not least because I am a stereotypical "struggling artist" myself, but also because there are so few younger artists entering this particular scene, and there is a danger of it becoming the sole domain of a handful of forty somethings who really ought to be doing something better with their time! Having worked for most of the more reputable underground magazines in the early 90's, I was never afforded the luxury of taking time and care over reviews, as deadlines and column space were always hanging like the sword of Damocles over me. With WHITE_LINE, I have the luxury of being able to review when I have time, and I am receptive to a particular mood, and hopefully this will reflect in the quality and length of some of the reviews. If you like what you see, please link to me to encourage more traffic through the site, and cross promote whatever is happening out there. Address for promotional material: 45 Drovers Walk Spring Park, Kingsthorpe Northampton NN2 8BB UK
