Amy Smith is a self-educated contemporary artist. Born in New Jersey, but not built for the cold, she moved to Los Angeles where she found inspiration, mentors, and support in the Street Art community.
In her Collage Portrait Series, Amy Smith uses photography, and layers of hand cut stencils, and torn recycled fashion magazine pieces to simultaneously represent her love of fashion and her contempt for excessive consumerism. In addition, she showcases female portraits to empower and unify, creating a space to feel connected to oneself and to each other.
Smith’s mixed media collages have been shown at Saatchi’s The Other Art Fair, Wallspace Gallery, The Whole 9 Gallery, and been part of auctions such as revered Julien’s Auctions. Smith’s works can also be found on online galleries like Saatachi and Artsy.net.
Amy Smith’s work has been featured in a number of private collections, residences, businesses, television shows and films.
