About the Artist

Irish-French artist Barbara Smith studied at Goldsmith’s College in London; a school which has helped nurture many great talents such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Lucian Freud. Continually challenging the traditional notions of design and developing her own creative approach to a multitude of disciplines, Smith also trained at Estudio Mariscal in Barcelona with Oscar-winning Film Director Javier Mariscal, who is also one of today’s most innovative and original multidisciplinary artist-designers.

Smith explores artistically through a wide range of mediums from painting and drawing to etching in plexiglass. She uses techniques such as drip-painting, pochoir and blind-contour drawing, investing in the process itself, which she values just as highly as the result. Smith often includes visual references to popular culture, art history and comics, although her work is frequently characterised by a distinctive and recurrent theme of Life, Death and Hope.

Smith currently lives and works in Brittany, France.
