Christopher Smith is an artist and illustrator living in West Rupert, VT. Smith is originally from Connecticut until his move ten years ago. Smith studied at, and graduated from (the) Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in illustration in 1990. While in college, he studied in Rome, Italy for a year and travelled to Istanbul, Turkey–while the experience was fascinating and highly educational, in the end it makes him appreciate the freedoms we have here in the states.
Smith’s show is a mix of recent printmaking (block prints), drawings, and paintings. Mostly a lighthearted take on some uniquely American themes–everything from covered bridges, to Harley Davidsons and monster trucks.
