Arland Michael Simmons, a native of Orlando, Florida, demonstrated his innate artistic talent at a very early age, and he and was fortunate to be encouraged and supported by his parents. Arland's original passion, which is painting, is a story of inspiration in itself. Each creation is symbolic of his spiritual relationship with God, and his commitment and love for his family. Each painting represents a rebirth, which is an opportunity for mankind to right the imperfection and sorrows of the world. Through his use of bold and vibrant colors, his creative imagery leaps from the canvas and engages even the casual art enthusiast. "Art that not only touches the heart, but the eyes."

"I am very excited about the opportunity to exhibit my work at Artexpo New York," commented Simmons. "My purpose as an artist is to create abstract cubism paintings with a heavy textured medium that are an experiment of people and the many layers of life experiences that it takes to complete a person's soul. Painting allows me to define myself in relation to the world and how we view it."
