Simon Schubert (born 1976) is an artist based in Cologne, Germany, his birthplace. From 1997 to 2004 he trained at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in the sculpture class of Irmin Kamp.

Inspired by Surrealism as well as by Samuel Beckett, Schubert's works imagine architectural settings, common situations and objects, whereas the materials he uses are either simple or sophisticated - white paper folded or mixed media arrangements. Some of his paper foldings entered the West Collection, Oaks, PA,[1] while the Saatchi Collection, London, owns sculptural works in mixed media.[2]

In 2008, Schubert received the ZVAB Phönix Art Award for new-comers.[3]
