Cedric Smith

Cedric Smith


If you aren't already familiar with painter/photographer Cedric Smith, then it is my honor to introduce you to your new favorite artist! His use of old photographs in his paintings of vintage advertisements, labels and signs is simply beautiful. I am so sad that I missed seeing his recent show at the Dillon Gallery in NYC, it would have been thrilling to see his work in person. Here is a link to his blog- Vintage Blood .

These are just amazing. I went to his site and am going back for a good look tomorrow. Love the colors, concept and contrast. The three c's. I just made that up.

Count me in! Cedric is great and uniquely Cedric.
His history is pretty interesting too. A Barber by trade, he was inspired by a customer(an artist)to paint, so he did! And look what happened!
He has been a huge inspiration to me.

Thank you for this wonderful post! I am definitely going to become a collector of his work. I used to own 3 tea rooms and collectible shops in Seattle and sold many vintage items. You have increased my Joy today!
