Known for his intricately cut doily-like sculptures, Simon Periton was born in England and studied at London's Central St Martins college. Periton draws inspiration for his work from a wide range of sources including punk, paganism, the occult, religion and politics. Commissioned to create pieces for Channel 4's London headquarters and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Periton also exhibited at the Royal Academy's summer exhibition in 2004 and 2007.

Selected exhibitions:


  • Solo: Mint Poisoner, Inverleith house, Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, 2003
