Nick Smith is a contemporary British Artist with a unique visual language.
His medium of custom colour swatches evolved after a successful 10 year career in commercial interior design following his First Class Masters Degree in Product Design from Coventry University.
Seeking further creative fulfilment, Smith dedicated himself full time to his art. With 5 sellout solo shows, 16 group shows and over 25 published print editions, he occupies a unique space in the contemporary art world.
Marrying digital design with fine art, Smith’s work explores the relationship between audience, image and text. After deconstructing an image, he undertakes extensive research to annotate each colour swatch with a word. Evolving from word/colour association, Smith often includes a linear narrative to subvert or support the context of each image, creating an additional layer of information in his work. It is this contextual interplay that engages the viewer with Smith’s thought provoking work, encouraging further contemplation.
