About

Combining contemporary portraiture with minimalist abstract graffiti-style crowns, Brian Smith’s figurative mixed media works exude modern elegance. His crowns are a recognizable symbol of modern popular culture, expressing a radiance akin to luminous clouds. They are a perfect complement to his fascination with the interplay of the material world and the intellect. His subjects, through the balance of color and texture, are suspended in a universe between vision and pop art realism. The mysterious gaze and confident poses of his subjects express freedom and tenacity. This original 16 inch high by 20 inch wide painting is wired and ready to hang. The sides of this figurative artwork are painted as a continuation of the front and it does not require framing. This artwork features gold leaf. It is signed by the artist on the front and back. Convenient local Los Angeles area shipping. Affordable U.S. and worldwide shipping also available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included. The repetition of crowns as the main theme across his body of work reveals Smith’s interest in the intersection of fashion, royalty, and creative expression. The crown tends to spark a variety of reactions from people. “There is this great intrigue around royalty and nobility. I like to mix that fascination with contemporary aspects of fashion photography and a hint of urban art to capture the emotions associated with this culture”. Smith's works make a powerful statement with a simple composition as excellent proof of his artistic vision. Brian Smith graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design obtaining a B.F.A. in Production Design and Art History. He now resides in Hollywood, California, and has exhibited at art galleries in Los Angeles since 2020.
