aaron smith's use of paint is awesome. chunky, thick like buttercream frosting and each stroke is full of energy. and the colors. ohh the colors.
his newest series of bearded gentlemen portraits (entitled bearded blokes), which surely sounds less than very contemporary, is anything but. he proves any subject can be thrilling and full of life. you just have to find it, and bring it out. art crush indeed.
