zak SMITH is a punk rock porn star trapped in the body of a classically trained artist. his work is scattered with mohawks and tattooed nude bodies while at the same time maintaining an unrelenting rigor that makes his work hard to ignore. smith’s use of selective vibrant colors against stark black and white drawings fill his pages almost to the point of overflow. often working at the scale of a post card sized image, smith meticulously details every centimeter of the page with overlapping fields of patterns. the contact sheet of smaller images forms a larger piece amplifying the impressive density. the flicker between the single images and the overall composition allows the patterns and colors to create a multiplicity of figures at various scales.
