Radically Fabulous Art Snob Sweepstakes

THIS SWEEPSTAKES HAS ENDED. CONGRATULATIONS TO TIM WHITLEY!!! 

STAY TUNED FOR THE RADICALLY FABULOUS BEAUTIFUL SKIN SWEEPSTAKES!

Most of my artwork is inspired by jazz.

Not just the sounds and personalities of jazz but by the spirit of energy, diversity,

and personal expression within the context of group expression that jazz

embodies.

To me, this is the spirit of life and love.

– Harold Smith

Harold Smith is an acclaimed artist whose works have been shown in San Francisco and Kansas City. And they’ve been sold to collectors in the United States, Japan, France, Germany, Belgium, Israel, South Africa, Mexico, Panama and other countries around the globe.

HAROLD SMITH

For me, creating art is a very natural and spontaneous process. To me, one may learn the technical aspects of artistic painting but the creative aspect is innate. I may mull over a concept or a piece of music for weeks before it comes together on canvas. When it comes together, I find a certain tension in painting as the paint clashes with the canvas and with itself.
