Biography   Hal Smith


The following, submitted October 2004, is from the artist whose website is www.halrsmith.com

My work is broadly eclectic figuration. I try through sculpture and painting, working from the literal to the expressionistic, to capture and portray the deep symbolic essence inherent in man's mythological, metaphorical and erotic nature.

I was born in Flatbush, the heart of Brooklyn, New York, to a couple of kids out of Manhattan's "Hell's Kitchen", whose idea of art lay somewhere between Saturday Evening Post Covers and calendar art.

I attended the Pratt Institute, an old and highly respected repository for aspiring Picasso's, studying painting under the tutelage of Edwin Dickinson, NA., Edgar Whitney, and Walter Klett.
