Welcome to the portfolio of painting and
illustration by Klaus Smith
Klaus Smith creates colorful abstract expressionist paintings. Moved by her fascination for shapes, light, and ultimately the love to represent the inner feelings, she creates abstract works of vibrant, saturated hues, using acrylics on canvas and paper. A tattoo artist background was too limiting to express the powerful imaginary that is going to make a strong statement in every milieu. Each piece has its own original story, some more deeper than others: the use of metallic leaf will make the piece change its appearance according to the time of the day creating a different mood every hour.
Serious inquiries only. Thank you!
I use many different mediums, such as copic, acrylics, pastels, metallic paint and golden leaf. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process.
I find inspirations in the pages of history, in the books of Sartre and Heidegger, in the poetry of T.S.Eliot and the short stories of Bukowski. Basically everywhere...
