Fine Painting Supports

Simon Liu, Inc.

With more than three decades at the forefront of crafting fine painting supports, Simon Liu, Inc. continues to set the standard for inspired innovation and exceptional workmanship.

“Simon Liu? I thought he was a mythical figure.”

Throughout the ‘80s and early ‘90s, it was a constant — a dash of yellow darting along the drab, pothole-strewn streets of SoHo and surrounding blocks just as that area dominated the art world. In fact, everywhere Simon Liu’s rusty but trusty 1974 Volkswagen Beetle ventured across the five boroughs, it was hard to miss.
