American artist, Brian Smith, combines contemporary portraiture and pop culture iconography with his hyperrealist style. He pairs his detailed subjects with minimalist backgrounds – sometimes stark, colorful, or with a gilded metal leafing that creates a dynamic relationship within the work. “I want the detail of my artwork to entice the viewer in and allow them to draw their own conclusions about the image. I like to fuse my hyperrealist technique with a subtle veil of surrealism and mystery…whether that is the gaze of a figure or the reflection from a still object.”
Brian graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design obtaining a B.F.A. in Production Design and Art History. He resides in Hollywood, California, and has exhibited at Los Angeles art galleries since 2020. His artwork is held in private collections around the United States, France, and China.
