Alan Smith

Alan Smith was Head of Advertising and Graphic Design at Newcastle School of Art, before becoming a full-time artist. Although interested in a variety of subjects such as landscape, still life and the human form, it is his fascination with 'street life' and the urban landscape that remains a major focal point. Crowded streets, markets, people shopping or just "strutting their stuff" appeals to Alan's sense of humour and it's here that he finds constant inspiration from the subjects.

In the past Alan tended to keep mediums separate (and sometimes still does), but recently he has taken to working in a mixed media, which seems to have brought out stronger drawing in his work - a nod back to his visualising days with magic markers in advertising, when strong line work was a feature of his commercial style.
