Biography Rupert Jansen Smith
Rupert Jansen Smith was born in 1953 in Palm Beach, Florida. Aside from being Andy Warhol's printer and an important collaborator with Warhol in his later years, he was an artist in his own right.
Some critics say that without Pietro Psaier, backdrop designer, and fellow artist Rupert Jasen Smith in the background, Warhol could never have produced and maintained production of the Factory commercial output. However, with both dignity and style both men chose not to take the limelight from Warhol.
Smith also designed and printed uniquely colored silkscreen prints for the introduction to the portfolio of prints and writings by Keith Haring and William Burroughs entitled Apocalypse, published in 1988.
