Hi y’all! My name is Darryl Smith and I welcome you all to my long-awaited blog!
I like to thing that I am, at my deepest core, an interpreter, a poet, and an artist. I am a hardcore language lover and convey these feelings through my figure drawings. I am a lover of classicism and all things Greco-Roman and it is this drive that brings me into the studio everyday and keeps me pretty much afloat and breathing. Is it a lifestyle? Perhaps. This journey through contemporary figure drawing and classicism has heavily impacted my way of thinking, visual aesthetics, and overall philosophy. It has been difficult to express these impacts verbally
(in English, that is) because for me my drawings are the translations, but this blog will attempt to explore all the facets of my mind as I think and create.
