Article published by Savoy Court about the commissioned painting titled Savoyards April 2024.

Royal Academy trained artist, Simon Casson was selected for his beautiful, rich, historical narratives. He spent time with the 7 Savoy Court stakeholder group discussing themes and ideas.

“Historic Thames, statuesque tall ships, the river running through the city, the warmth of the human form, alongside natural elements, a sense of space, an airy field of landscape and the sky”

“When approached to bring forth a company’s musing of a painting that they will engage with every working day, to be passed by every visitor and every colleague, that they feel will enhance the complexion of the workplace, especially in such a prestigious environment, is both an immense responsibility and a wonderful challenge.” Simon Casson 2020

The artist is as mythic as his paintings, described by the trendy New York interior
designer Adam Tihany as “the Renaissance on LSD”. Casson is one of the most highly skilled painters of his generation. His paintings are broken historical narratives, fragmenting, shielding and obscuring, causing one to peek through layers and portals to another lining, another existence.

Casson exhibits regularly in London and Internationally. He completed his B.A in Fine Art at Exeter College of Art and Design with First Class Honours, then moved on to Central Saint Martins to study for a Postgraduate Diploma in Printmaking. His education was completed with three years studying at the Royal Academy Schools in London, gaining an M.A at the Painting School
