Meet Simon Barclay-Filer
A Guild Commended Framer for the last 20 years, combined with photography and graphic design study at the London College of Print; Simon’s approach to framing is far removed from the generic and old school approaches of the ’80s!!
His experience stretches across the globe from Paris to Monaco to Abu Dhabi travelling as Harrod’s recommended framer and hanging the very same artwork for their clientele.
After 2 years as lead technician at the Halcyon Gallery in Bond Street, London Simon branched out as an independent and set up the London Framing Workshop based in Hackney Wick.
Embracing East London’s urban art culture in the shadows of the 2012 London Olympics Simon quickly established himself as the go-to ‘Art Man’ and spent the following 10 years curating, framing and hanging shows for leading artists making waves on the East London art scene, many of whom are now world-renowned.
2021 sees Simon heading up the Hampshire Framing Workshop and bringing his unique talents of creativity and contemporary understanding of framing to artists, galleries and private clients across the south east of England.
