baby pony

artist alert!

artwork by brian david smith

one of my all time favorite painters also happens to be a friend...

i first became aware of brian's work back in my st. louis days, when he graced the walls of many an art st. louis exhibition. i became an instant fan. his style is immediately recognizable, with his broad brush strokes and punchy palette. i dare anyone to walk by his work without stopping.....i just don't think it's humanly possible. he consistently pursues the process of putting paint to surface, layer upon layer, texture upon texture, all the while exploring explosive color combinations and manipulating shape and form relationships.

he's updated his site with new work, as well as a time lapse page illustrating the making of two of his paintings.
