Simone Boon

Simone Boon (Dutch) lived since early childhood days in ever changing surroundings, such as Borneo, the Netherlands, Venezuela, Belgium, Malaysia, Austria (Vienna). Since 2004 based in Hong Kong. Simone started also a studio in Amsterdam North near NDSM, since 2014.

Living between east and west made her aware of the different ways in which people perceive the world around them, realizing that preconceptions, as well as understanding or misunderstanding are intertwined with the inner paradigms embedded in each of us by the culture of our upbringing.
