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 painting 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 brought together to tell a story with a seemingly endless narrative that excites the viewer. This unique artwork measures 33 inches high by 6 inches wide. It does not require framing. Smith combines his own photography with drawings and other narrative fragments. He works with several layout combinations before creating a finished image. From this finished layout, he selects and transmits individual pieces onto a canvas through screen-printing and further completes his works with oil or acrylic paint. This artwork is inspired by the unique designs of book spines. Carl Smith's book spine artworks can be displayed as one or as a collection of literature. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included. 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, invited to exhibit in the 2012 Paris Mac art fair as a featured guest of the organizers. Group Shows 2016 Artspace Warehouse.
