Artist of the moment……..Street artist and illustrator Paige Smith

 

 

Paige Smith is an American graphic designer and street artist. Her street art installations are sculptures made of resin and paper. Her first big project was to install these pieces all over the city of Los Angeles, California.

As a graphic designer the artist has been very successful working with international brands including PayPal, MTV, and Cisco.

With the help of a partner Smith recently launched a fashion line. The duo produce leather handbags that can switch from a backpack to a handbag.

Below a brief interview with the artist talking about what inspires her:

Some places to find her installations include old and worn buildings and phone booths.

Paige Smith is a diversified artist and designer. Her small sculptures are wonderful as they remind me of being a child and being exposed to the wonderful shapes and colors found when you sliced open a rock such as quartz.
