Recognized for his heavy body acrylic canvases with bold colors, Jack has interpreted his subjects and ideas of nature, landscape and objects through abstracts, realism and mixed media. He has a creative mind with a natural attention to detail.
Jack's artwork will be available to purchase and a portion of his sales will be donated to HP Arts and the Noggin Foundation, a group dedicated to improving educational opportunities for underprivileged students which is a cause close to the hearts of the Smith household.
Jack Smith began drawing an sketching at a very early age, when unlike most young children, his art took recognizable form and color. His first painting, PENGUIN, earned him the cover page of the Westminster Preschool newsletter at age four. A natural artist, his understanding of light, color and form continues to evolve and expand as he explores new mediums.
Jack began formal painting study at Zhen Music and Art Institute in Dallas at age ten and continues to learn and experiment inside and outside the classroom. His teacher, Zhen Wu, is an advocate of young artists and has helped him grow technically while mentoring his talent and spirit. The Zhen Gallery featured Jack's paintings during the 2014 Spring Show. Jack has been featured in Park Cities People, Art & Seek, White Rock Weekly, and the Dallas Morning News.
Since 2013, Jack Smith has consistently been selling, commissioning and donating paintings. He is a regular contributor to Children's Medical Center and has donated paintings to benefit the Cattle Barons Ball, Autism Treatment Center, Highland Belles, Dallas Junior Forum, Delete Blood Cancer and the Museum of Biblical Art Education Programs.
