Who is Sly Panda?

Artist and adventurer.

In 2008 Simon Carter (b.1990) borrowed a small loan, bought a car and a camera and this was the beginning.

From 2009-2013 he studied photography at Plymouth College of Art.  He experimented with the properties of light and became fascinated by cameras. He spent all his money on film and petrol and set out to explore, document and create.  Using a cocktail of analogue and digital techniques the artists name evolved to Sly Panda. "Sly" because he was sneaky when taking photographs, and "Panda" because he has a Enjoi  (skateboard brand) panda logo tattoo. 

Sly Panda graduated with a 2:1 and been featured in numerous publications in print and online including Saatchi Art, DIYnamite, Lamono Magazine, Hard Magazine, 121clicks and Süddeutsche Zeitung. He has participated in exhibitions around Wales, London and Plymouth and is currently based in his hometown of  Cardiff.
