Artist Nick Smith Psycolourgy.
Nick Smith was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1980 and grew up in Bath, England from 1985 to 2000. He has a Masters Degree in Product Design. Smith moved to London in 2006 and Spent 7 years happily working as an Interior Designer. Later, Smith resigned from his job to spend his time creating art and messing with pervasive commercial and art imagery.
Smith’s first solo show of camouflage of colors "Psycolourgy" at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery, features his impressive re-creations of masters’ paintings with custom individual Pantone color chips. Smith re-worked pieces from several major artists including Francis Bacon, David Hockey, Leonardo da Vinci, Rene Magritte, Claude Monet, Edvard Munch, George Stubbs, Johannes Vermeer, Vincent Van Gogh, and Andy Warhol.
Each of the color chips that makes up these original works has been created by Nick and customized with a specific name that relates to the artwork it comprises, adding that extra dimension.
