Inside the studio of Aof Smith in Thailand as he prepare for his sophomore U.S. solo exhibition, ‘Vibration.’
The Bangkok-based contemporary artist expresses his perception and imagination through the limitless possibilities of Pop-surrealism. With loveable characters that create whimsical scenarios and dynamics, Smith balances an innate dark humor with lighter, brighter elements. Drawing inspiration from manga, science fiction, and other art forms, Smith creates the unique creatures he calls “Furries.” These fantastical characters are rendered in complex detail, often accompanied by unsettling elements like lit fuses and missiles, reflecting Smith’s satirical take on modern society.
Environmental consciousness is a driving force behind his art. In a world struggling with consumerism and waste, Smith contemplates what legacy humanity will leave for future generations. Smith’s goal for the future is simple yet ambitious: to continue creating, fueled by a commitment to his artistic vision.
‘Vibration’ opens on November 4 in Gallery III with a reception from 6-10pm at Thinkspace Projects.
On view November 4, 2023 – November 25, 2023
4207 + 4217 W. Jefferson Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90016
We’re thrilled to continue to elevate and celebrate the artists during the opening reception, and we thank those who helped to make the evening an experience. Those in attendance could partake in a delicious taco stand, engaging light projections, live painting by Angel Once, and merchandise booths from local artisans and Timeless Vapes. And bringing the work of The Perez Bros to life, a few polished lowriders were parked in front of the courtyard providing additional eye candy for guests as they walked between the two gallery spaces.
