"Simon Shegelman is a minstrel of the world of night, of nocturnal reflections, and of the artificial midnight sun. He is a bard who celebrates the neon lighting of our cities whose constant pulsating rhythm never fades."
Pierre-Paul Cormier, Le Droit, Ottawa


"Shegelman is a loyal and devoted follower of the axiom of philosopher Simonide di Ceo - "Painting is a silent poetry. Poetry is a vocal painting."
Giorgio Tellan / Italian Art Historian
