Mexican Artist/Illustrator: Smithe

smithe-artist-06

Mexican artist Smithe painted one of my favourite murals at Pow! Wow! Hawaii this year; it was a collaboration with German artist Case, and you can see it here. When I first posted his work back in 2012 I didn’t realise that in addition to being an insane painter and illustrator he’s also a musician! His band, .Stendal will be playing SXSW this month!

Seeing his work nice and big in Hawaii took it to a whole other level for me. I love his line work and the way he colours his pieces. Take a look at some more images below.

Wooden Mexican wrestler masks!
