Contemporary American artist Brian Smith combines portraiture and pop culture iconography with hyperrealist details in his original acrylic and mixed media paintings. He pairs his subjects with minimalist backgrounds, creating a dynamic relationship within the work.
Smith’s paintings evolve towards a universe where the shapes, the lines, the colors, and the composition of the motives lead to the mystery of the true creation: to see the invisible and to say the unspeakable, to show to hide, to detail to suggest, to allow a composition to mean something other than what we see.
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 has been collected by Paris & Kathy Hilton, Issa Rae, and is held in private collections around the United States, France, and China.
