Shane Smith is a Jamaican born, New York based, multimedia artist who has been honing his artistic skills professionally since 2016.
The majority of his work maintains a balance between figuration and abstraction, suitably in junction with the metaphysical questions and themes manifested in his work.
The artist’s inspirations are vast and diverse. However, more generally, the work is influenced by empirical themes, personal experiences, and perceptual observations of the nature of reality and society. He approaches his practice as a kind of meditation on subjects that interest him, as well as a way to explore his own psyche.
