Featured on Exhibition A
Born in 1989 and based in New York, artist Lucien Smith has been named one of Complex’s top 25 Artists to Watch in 2013. Upcoming 2013 shows include a group show at Brand New Gallery in Milan and three solos at Suzanne Geiss Company (NY), Salon 94 (NY) and Bill Brady Gallery in Kansas City, MO. This past September at OHWOW in Los Angeles, Smith presented “Seven Rain Paintings”, created by aiming a paint-filled fire extinguisher fired at the canvases, along with a wood chip and sound installation. A month later, one of his pie paintings dominated Salon 94′s booth at Frieze London. Smith showed another pie painting in It Ain’t Fair, OHWOW’s annual Miami group show, as well as a guitar piece not unlike those he exhibited at his solo at Half Gallery in October.
