Description This painting is an original work by Damian Smith, Australian born artist. His work is best described as a fusion of pop culture and realism. This painting is the second in a series of five. The centre of the story is a girl named Destiny as featured in this painting. She has been taken by her fears in this frame of the story and her capture is using her to control the technology. A metaphor for being controlled by the responsibility the future and adulthood will bring.
Damian Smith, Brisbane Member Since August 2011 Artist Statement I am currently based in Brisbane Australia working as an Illustrator / Artist. Having studied Illustration I enjoy bringing the story telling element into my paintings. I draw emotion through my paintings in the same way comic art is used. My recent focus in subject matter has been in a few different directions – Story telling Illustration paintings with an anime influence. Glamour photography influenced portrait paintings. And Illustration portrait works where I convey a certain mood using connotations of colour and subject matter with minimal context. I currently exhibit orginals in galleries and cafe type environments in Brisbane. My priority with my art has always been to create affordable modern art for every one to enjoy.
