Simon Haas pursues his passion, primarily inspired by Tom of Finland, for gay erotic artwork in pencil and through digital media. With his twin brother Nikolai, he is one half of the studio The Haas Brothers, noted for their sculptural works that blur
the line between art and design. The Haas Brothers’ works are included in major collections, including the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York, NY; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Rhode Island School
of Design Museum, Providence, RI; and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY. In 2021, he participated in Tom of Finland Foundation’s charitable auction Sexology 101, and in the same year was a participant in the Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival. Haas lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
