Mr Simonson is among artists asked to display their work at the zoo's Love London recycled sculpture show, which aims to promote environment sustainability and conservation. You can see his collection of animals and insects in the iconic Penguin Pool until September 5. "I got a good spot," Mr Simonson tells People. "The London Zoo exhibition is one of the biggest for exposure and my work suits the area where it is."
Mr Simonson has been sculpting for more than 20 years. He trained in graphic design before completing a welding course, which led to competition prizes for art and design before he branched into environmental sculpture.
He used to live in Israel, where he worked as an art director. Home now is in Bounds Green, North London. He attends Cockfosters and North Southgate shul.
