"One of my big inspirations growing up was Dr. Seuss, in particular 'Green Eggs and Ham.' I fixate on the page, 'In the dark, here in the dark,' the simplicity of the two colors. I've never really executed a painting that shows my love for Dr. Seuss' style more than this one."
David Aaron Smith is an artist/activist who's work centers on social issues. Rather than exploit the situations he paints about, David wants to give back. For each painting sold, David will donate half of his share to a cause listed in the description of the painting. From David: "I think it's a great way to get people involved in my work, and even piquing an interest in art in general. So many times, art is bought and sold for it's aesthetic value only when the art with the greatest value is that which is used as a tool to tell the story of a culture's moment in history. My work is about OUR moment in history and how it looks from my perspective. I think it will speak to those who see the same America." Watch the documentary, "The Last Mountain," to get an idea of David's roots in activism. Along with his large body of political fine-art, David is also working on a "living sculpture" in Death Valley that you can stay at : #davidaaronsmith #villaanitadv
