ARTIST/ILLUSTRATOR, BRADY SMITH CLEVERLY COMBINES SPACE AGE,
TEX MEX, & DIA DE LOS MUERTOS, IN HIS NEW EXHIBITION OPENING MARCH 9.

February 18, 2013 (Los Angeles, CA) -- On Saturday, March 9th, 2013, The Navarro Residence presents an exclusive exhibition, "Guitars, Roller Skates and Pugnacious Critters" the illustrative works of L.A. artist, Brady Smith.  Born and raised in Texas, Brady creates art that is a clever hybrid mix of space-age, tex-mex and tiki influenced characters, painted in a color palette reminiscent of the 1950’s and 60’s.

Having exhibited dozens of times in Los Angeles and Texas, others have also perceived his work as anything from folk to abstract. Because he was raised in such close proximity to the Mexican border, the influences from his youth are evident in the playful scenarios and vibrancy created by a lively, detail oriented imagination. His most recent gallery solo exhibition entitled: “Wrestlers, Bunnies, Skeletons and Such” was held in August, 2012 at One Art Space, in TriBeca, NYC, NY.

Saturday, March 9th will be Brady Smith’s first exhibition at The Navarro Residence, located in Highland Park, CA. Curator/collector, Navarro, owns several Smith original works, and finds the quirkiness and whimsical imagery his art offers is a great addition to her large personal collection of art, and felt others who don’t yet know about Brady Smith will feel the same, and want to add his art to their personal or gallery collections.
