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. These works focus on aesthetic beauty inspired by glamour photography. Developing my attention to detail I enjoy bringing out varied emotion through these works. Glamour Nostalgia is an introspective painting to reflect on this style of paintings which I have now completed over 30 of. Focusing on aesthetic beauty mainly on the eyes and lips to evoke emotion. I really enjoy the way this painting draws you into the girls thoughts.
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.
