About the Artist

James Smith is an artist based in Adelaide, South Australia who was taught the arts by his grandfather. Working mainly with acrylic and oilstick James has been well known in the community for his vibrant colour palette where his work has been inspired from conversations, moments and feelings reflecting an urban and very unconventional style.

James has been well known to include the words “Big Dreams, Small City” in some of his works marking a statement based off conversation with various artists, entrepreneurs and business people following their dreams (like himself) trying to making it out of Adelaide. Being that Adelaide is a small city the strive to “make it” in the voices of these people was prominent and stimulating for the artist hearing them share their stories inspired him the write the words and paint small cities in his works.
