Brian Smith is a Sheffield-based artist with an unusually wide range of skills, from life drawing tutor at Sheffield's Millennium Gallery, to running his own painting courses; from lecturing in visual communication at Hallam University to commercial murals. He paints chiefly in watercolour and sketches prolifically, en plein air, in any medium, whatever catches his eye.
His subject matter can literally be anything, though as a former architect, buildings and the spaces between them, and the people and paraphernalia which occupy those spaces, often command his attention.
His sketch books and paintings are a travelogue of places visited and experiences enjoyed, recorded in a vibrant, confident, often quick-fire style.
