Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON - Apr 06, 2016 - The work of UK artist Elle Smith is featured in a 26-page spread in ARTiculAction Magazine this spring.
Smith, an emerging visual artist and poet, discovered a passion for painting with oils on canvas in 2014. Her work features compact portraits as well as abstract and conceptual artwork. The self-taught artist paints from sight while drawing from her background in academia as well as her intuitive connection to her subjects, which infuses her art with insight and empathy.
Smith’s 26-page spread, available March 26, features limited edition prints inspired by her own life experiences. ARTiculAction also included an interview with Smith and several of her poems.
“I strive to create art for everyone — art that is intelligent, engaging and inspirational,” Smith said. “I’m very honoured that ARTiculAction has provided me with a significant platform for sharing my work with their readers. Being selected by the curators of ARTiculAction’s content for such a sizeable feature validates my recent decision to pursue painting in a deeper way.”
ARTiculAction’s Elle Smith feature is the longest the art magazine has ever published. The spread can be viewed online at https://issuu.com/articulaction/docs/articulaction_art_re….
