About

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 resin to create his urban inspired artworks. In his art Smith explores the area between Pop Art and Surrealism. Each carefully constructed artwork is a unique compilation of images and text brought together to create an interesting juxtaposition that excites the viewer. The surface of this 24 inch high by 16 inch wide artwork is covered with a smooth layer of clear, glass-like resin, which enhances the colors and adds depth to the pop imagery of these robots. The sides are finished natural wood. This artwork does not require framing. It is signed and titled by the artist on the back. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included. Affordable Continental US and global shipping is available. Smith combines his own photographic material with drawings and other fragments of narrative imagery. He works with several layout combinations before creating a finished composition. Through his use of strong visual cues, 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 is originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico, and studied art at Cooper Union in New York. He 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, and was also invited to exhibit in the 2012 Paris Mac art fair as a featured guest of the organizers.
