Celebrating its 31st year in Chicago, Simes Studios is known nationwide for their excellence in applied artistry in both contemporary and traditional settings. In the manner of the famous Renaissance workshops, the studio is a synthesis of the individual artistic talents and specialties of a group of fine artists. Beginning as apprentices they progress to senior artists skilled in the diverse aspects of their craft.
Located in an elegant, renovated stable in Bucktown and unified under the direction of Cindy and Jorge Simes, the studio had its beginnings where the couple met in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There they studied traditional decorative painting techniques and produced their first commissions. In 1988 they moved to Chicago and soon began Simes Studios. Since that time they have blossomed into a growing business with a full time group of professional artists and support staff.
