Some new paintings by my supremely talented friend, Mexican artist Smithe. One of my absolute favourite artists. More images below.
Earlier this year we teamed up with WeTransfer to profile a diverse group of artists and investigate their creative motivations while they made work at the Pow! Wow! Hawaii arts festival. Huge thanks to director David Ehrenreich and cinematographer Liam Mitchell, it was an amazing experience working with them once again. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this little piece, I hope you enjoy it! Please view it full screen HD if your connection is fast enough!

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.
