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.
