My name is Simon Tamayo Giraldo. Welcome to my personal portfolio! Painting is one of the things that I have managed to keep doing for my entire life and I believe it has “evolved” with me. My life turns around an entirely different universe than that of art. In my day-job I'm a scientist! I work as an Associate Professor in an engineering school in Paris. I like to think that I earn my life “creating and sharing knowledge”, but I do paint and I hope that from time to time I produce some art. As a matter of fact painting it is an important part of my life that completes me and gives me perspective. As Pollock used to say: "Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is". Best regards from the city of lights!
