All the materials I use are acquired from torn down film sets, lumber scraps from scenery shops, Foam blocks from leftover sculptures, latex and acrylic paints from the paint department, chemical compounds, the ideas and methods I used are learned from the industry and revised by me. When creating my patterns I use a special compound with special knives. When I choose the subject I make sure it speaks to me poetically. Often times I turn off my mind and let the materials guide the entire 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 main theme, love passion and seduction is a part of my musings. My art is a highly personal often a secret practice in my life because of the subjects I choose and the romantic history that I share with them.
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!
