A link to a great article about my artwork on the website artograma.com. Big thanks to Adam Eisenstat for the props!
Artist Mark T. Smith (Marktsmith.com), who’s based in Miami, has leveraged his dazzlingly colorful palette and fascination with quasi-mythic/archetypal imagery into a solid career. Two of his signal accomplishments are the Absolut Vodka ad he created in 1996 (“Absolut Smith”) and the poster he did for United States Olympic Team for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Some of his many other corporate patrons over the years include: MTV, Pepsi, AT&T, Budweiser, and Disney. Popularity and accessibility are worthy goals for Smith, who believes that art’s “primary function is to ennoble the public,” and should thus play a larger role in everyday life.
