Carl Smith is an American artist who has been living in Berlin, Germany, since 2001. He works with a combination of silkscreen printing, collage, and painting to create his urban inspired artworks. Carl is originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico, and studied art at Cooper Union in New York.
This very large horizontal, 40 inch tall by 128 inch wide unique artwork is wired and ready to hang. It consists of 4 panels (each one measuring 40x32 inch), which hang closely installed next to each other. All the sides of this oversized artwork are carefully painted by the artist. It does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and global shipping. A certificate of authenticity is included.
In his art Smith explores the area between Pop Art and Surrealism. He combines his own photographic material with drawings and other fragments of narrative imagery. He works with several layout combinations before creating a finished image. From this image, he selects and transmits specific parts onto a canvas in a screen printing process and further completes his works with oil paint. With the use of imagery he tells slightly absurd and humorous visual anecdotes. The process of making these narrative works is what Smith refers to as, 'Drawing with Pictures'.
Carl Smith has exhibited his work in France, Germany, Norway, Holland, USA and England in numerous solo shows or as a member of a four man team called TABI. He was chosen as one of five artists who exhibited at the Berliner Liste, invited to exhibit in the 2012 Paris Mac art fair as a featured guest of the organizers.
