I met Simon in 2020 on the streets of Southampton. It was a really cold day and it had just started to rain. We spoke about his journey to where he was and like many homeless people that I have met the journey was a sad and lonely one where suddenly he found himself homeless and stuck in a deep hole that he was desperately trying to get out of.
I wanted to paint the background as cardboard as this was so prevalent in the homeless areas that I encountered and I also wanted to paint a glimpse of Simon’s childhood and the feeling of loneliness.
