ABOUT // THE ARTIST
Bisco Smith is an American contemporary artist, based in New York, recognized for his graffiti-deconstructive approach to abstract expressionism. Utilizing his understanding of space and songwriting from his early years as a graffiti writer, music maker, and graphic designer, Bisco strips his compositions to their fundamental essence of motion and rhythm while channeling the energy of a moment through gestural marks and abstracted, lyrical text. Reimagining the execution of abstract expressionist painting through his unique contemporary lens, Bisco aims to create art that inspires hope for the future. Over the past decade, Bisco has painted murals and performed live across the globe. He has partnered with creative brands including Nike, (RED), Coach, Adidas, SLS hotels, RYOT, and Hypebeast. With a resume of solo and group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Miami, Berlin, Seattle, and Hong Kong, Bisco Smith’s works are sought after by collectors and art enthusiasts worldwide.
