Carl E. Smith is a California based artist and graphic designer. His recent work mostly includes collages that convey the beauty, excitement, ruin and rebirth of iconic elements from our everyday lives. Using symbols, colors, and space, Smith creates explosive images that seem to question his existence and its place somewhere between archetypical fantasy and truth.
Carl was born and raised in the artist colony of Laguna Beach, California. From 1997 to 2004 Smith lived and worked in Prague, Czech Republic. He has shown in small and large scale shows internationally since 1998 and currently launching a new Art and Design studio in Laguna Beach where he resides with his wife Simona and son Sean.
