My art is an ongoing experiment with material combos, movement, and aesthetics.
Most of the materials I use have come to me in various ways, scraps from the mill, tinctures from the paint department, and things bound for the land fill in and around LA. When creating my patterns I use a special compound with special knives. When I discover the subject it will speak poetry to me. Often times I turn off my mind and let the tool and my hands guide the process. Most times I’ll let the paints at hand create my color palette for a particular piece. Often times I let circumstance narrate the style . Almost never will my initial concept become the finished product. Eroticism is a reoccurring theme, the ancient, world culture and a made up local mythology is a part of my musings .
I hope to fill your space with class, poetry and desire. My greatest ambition is for my pieces to spark enigmatic conversation between you and your dearests. As for the art, I would love for my subjects to come alive in their space and to vibe in erotic harmony in them as they pass from house to house with you and from generation to generation. I want you to desire the subject, fervently, as I did apon its inception. Gratis. Blaise.
Hello. I am Blaise Smith, I’m 33, from Burbank, CA . A father of three, and a scenic painter in the entertainment industry. A fourth generation LA film worker, most of my time is spent in the work shop, on a film set or at home creating with my toddlers, River and Skye. My timeline is dotted with strangeness, and my story is one of personal triumph. I’ve found myself in dim places like subterranean LA to some abandoned warehouses in Taipei and beyond, all for Art. Fine art, erotic art, and experimental textiles are my focus today, In the past 15 years I’ve compiled a collection of my own personal artworks. Most include the feminine form. I use a variety of materials acquired from torn down film sets and paint usually donated from various set shops. Finishes vary as my art is a constant experimentation. Thank you for reading and enjoy!
