This is a unique and original PMS abstract oil painting. It is part of a series of patterned pieces canvas. This painting has chaos and order in its streaking and textured color that is mesmerizing to the eye and dares you to touch it. This piece was painted with my own personal mantra in mind: Beauty, Color and Texture. It is a unification of highly textured painterly and design techniques I have been developing over the years. They culminate into an abstract/pop art hybrid that is symbolic, bold, vibrant and fun to look at. The texture in this piece is extreme and the colors are bright.
Artist Preston M. Smith (PMS) found himself cross-eyed and with no depth perception as a child. This was the "lens" through which he developed his unique visual perspective of the world, which he now shares as a painter. Preston’s work has transitioned from moody pop surrealist paintings into vibrantly colorful, tactile, highly textured and almost "edible"abstract works. His mantra for his abstract work is "color, texture, and beauty", and his work and life have been an expression of moving from darkness into light. Preston’s work has been showcased alongside David Lynch and at the Inaugural Purple Ball for President Obama’s Inauguration in 2009, where he was commissioned to paint 12 portraits of the President. Very recently his work was selected by a panel of curators as a winner in the 1st 2018 ArtSlant Artprize Showcase. His work has also been on display at the world famous La Luz De Jesus Gallery, and in numerous exhibitions throughout Los Angeles and across the country. Preston's was also recently the subject of a documentary short directed by Tony Lugo entitled "Negativity To Creativity" and his work is in private collections around the world as well in the homes of celebrities such as Ed Harris, Ashley Judd, Josh Lucas, and so forth.
