This painting was inspired by the acts of god and violence which have inflicted the entire world over recent years. With earthquakes, tsunamis, flood, war and terrorism frequently headlining our news these days, what kind of world is taking shape.
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.
