Damian Smith's Gallery

Damian Smith

Damian describes his entire life as a creative journey, starting with a fascination for colouring in comic books when he was a little kid. His passion for sci-fi and fantasy genres stay with him to this day and often guide his artistic exploration, often citing sci-fi movies such as Blade Runner or Star Wars as a catalyst for a spiral down a rabbit hole. The drama and amplified storytelling from these influences show through in his paintings and drawings. In his early career the reference was very literal to comic illustrations, though with many paths of experimentation he has refined his technique to become semi realism. Through the experimentation Damian has also refined his subject matter focus, drawing on his passion for human kinds relationship with the planet.

Damian’s curious nature will often see him stopping to notice the colour combinations of plants, landscapes, cityscapes and seascapes. These offerings from everyday life feed into his inspiration for balance and composition in his works. This curious nature also drives a lot of his art themes. The process of creating the art works reflect an internal process of the artist to figure out how things work, how the body, the mind, the heart, and nature works. This trait shows clearly in his daily life as a self-professed ‘tinkerer’.

In his current work Damian is reflecting on the wonder of natural surroundings around him and drawing on this to look to the possibilities of the future, often in concepts which are surreal and in the realm of fantasy.
