Amy Smith | About the Artist

Amy Smith

Contemporary,

Mixed-Media Artist

Figurative Painter, Portraitist,

Pop Artist, Muralist




Self-trained and always evolving, my artwork includes stencils, collage work, illustrations, digital graphic design, paint, and spray paint, all to create one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect both my passions and my fury, juxtaposed through the lens of imagination. While some of my work is driven by political, social, and environmental injustice, most reflect my deeply-rooted optimism and belief in the power of the feminist spirit, unity and love.

My portraiture collage series is created from torn, recycled fashion magazines to represent both my love for fashion and my contempt for excessive consumption. Tearing fashion magazines that were carefully crafted to objectify women, I transform consumer messaging into words and images that celebrate the diversity and identity of both iconic and “everyday” strong, powerful women.

My "Iconic Women" series pays homage to the courage, strength, and independence of women for whom we all owe a debt of gratitude. The mixed-media approach offers a new perspective on women’s empowerment that leaves behind what society demands. My artistic roots began in New Jersey, but the rich California art community is where I found new levels of inspiration and mentorship.

Featured in galleries including Saatchi’s The Other Art Fair, LA Art Show, and Wallspace LA, my pieces can be found in private collections and in several major city office buildings while other pieces have served as backdrops on popular tv and film sets including “Dear White People,”“Grownish,” and “Insecure.” My murals include an 8-foot image of Frieda Kahlo, featured at the San Diego North Park Art Festival and the painting of Maya Angelou in Hollywood, CA, was painted just before a peaceful protest in support of Black Lives Matter in 2020.I am a proud mother, activist, and an artist who never tires of exploring the edges of art, humanity, and hope.




Inspiration

My work ranges from murals, illustration, digital collage to original collage work surrounding themes of politics, feminism, culture, identity, and nature all to empower through love and connection
