Spoon Man – by ingrid k brooker
Proclaimed ‘Happy Tramp’, Simon Spoons travels from place to place playing the spoons and is most famed for his rendition of Insomnia by Faithless.
Composed of 135 individual illustrations this portrait strips Simon’s performance into its most essential element – the beat of the spoons. Minimalistic in its representation of both visual and aural aspects of performance, this piece aims to capture the essence of Simon’s mesmerising rhythms.
