BIOGRAPHIE

Ray Smith is a painter and sculptor born in 1959 in Brownsville in Texas.

He studied the technique of how to paint a fresco with traditional craftsmen from Mexico. Since 1985, he has been travelling between New York and Cuernavaca in Mexico.

A sort of magic realism that is proper to him characterizes the work of Smith. He bends, twists and transplants to reality an illogical creation of scenarios that are full of surprises and special effects.

His inimitable style and his favorite subjects, reflect his double culture, both American and Mexican. In his works Ray Smith tries to transcribe the complexity and absurdity of our society: Family, politics, culture, wars, and the human condition.

The artist often uses his dogs and other animals as anthropomorphic beings:
“They are an entity of the human figure, they are beasts, but they are directly attached to a blueprint of our own existence.”
