About Cedric Smith


Cedric Smith is a self-taught Georgia artist known for eschewing the "so-called rules of art". He draws on a wide range of influences and sources, both traditional and contemporary, including landscapes, pop art, brand advertising and photography, to express his poignant observations of life in the rural south. Smith works with a honed discipline on his compositions, seamlessly morphing photographic images into his richly textured pieces, applying and removing layers and lettering.
