Es Moli Gallery, Ibiza – new exhibition

“F*ck them all” is the theme of the exhibition by the Dutch painter, Paul Simons. If you are curious to find out what exactly the artist is trying to tell us with this provocative title, then make sure you don’t miss the opening night event at 9 p.m. on 15th May in the Es Moli gallery on the road from Ibiza to Santa Gertrudis.

“Life is amazing; it’s almost a pity that we are destined to spend every day of it working. Because life is also a great big party. I think that this normal life of ours is all that we need. Does anyone really believe that there is a better one waiting for us when we get to heaven? I sometimes ask myself what I’ve done to deserve all this!”

These are the few but telling phrases that Paul Simons wrote in the catalogue of his art that he published in 2008 in Groningen. After all, who needs to be wordy when his expressive pictures are there to do the talking for him?

Fun and games, live and let live – if you had to pick a motto to describe this 61 year old artist, these could well be the most fitting. He was born in Amsterdam and studied art in Groningen, Maastricht and the Hague. For the past eight years, this keen amateur sailor has been living on Ibiza. He draws much of his inspiration from the strong colours that characterise the island.

His ideas develop slowly in his mind until they spill out spontaneously as large and small-format oil paintings on paper and canvas. His brushstrokes are broad ones, of course, because Paul Simons is not one to express himself quietly. His works are the embodiment of his unmitigated lust for life. “F*ck them all” exhibition from 15th May to 15th June at the Es Moli gallery on the road from Ibiza to Santa Gertrudis.

Opening night: 15th May at 9 p.m. Opening hours: daily except Sunday from 8 to 9 p.m.
