Zak Smith

Contact the gallery for a complete catalog of available work.

Vivid depictions of female subjects rendered with gritty abstraction are the primary focus of Zak Smith’s artistic practice. His paintings and drawings are often intricately detailed, and narratively rich. Influenced by comic books, pop culture, and the women he’s known and worked with in the adult-film industry, Smith’s work springs from the bed of his alternative and punk rock sensibilities. The world exposed in Smith’s compositions is energetic, endlessly vibrant, and aesthetically complex. His pieces can be found in a number of public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Whitney Museum of American art where his work was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial. His work has also been show at institutions such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C.
