Alexander D.C.D. Smith was born in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1984, and moved to Los Angeles at the age of three. He pursued graphic design studies at California State University, Northridge receiving a BA in 2009. Since then he has created a wide range of pieces in a variety of materials, including canvas, wood panels, wall murals, clothing and shoes, furniture, motorcycle helmets, skateboards and more.
Smith says, “If paint will stick to it, I will paint it.”
Smith’s work explores the tension between opposites: dark and bright, glossy and matte, precision and spontaneity, structure and freedom. His work is inspired by urban and Asian cultures, typography, early cartoons, sports history, entertainment design, motor sports, and manufacturing techniques.
Smith is a proud member of the Los Angeles Art Association. He has participated twice in the Beverly Hills Art Show where in 2012 he received an award for his work. He has also shown his work in multiple art galleries and museums since 2009. Smith’s work has been displayed in Los Angeles, Venice, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, Culver City, and Pebble Beach. Alexander also works with corporations, and recently with Discovery Channel and T-Mobile at South by South West in Austin, TX and live paints at many venues.
