Lionel Smit will exhibit a solo exhibition, called Surface, at Art Space gallery, Johannesburg from 8 October – 5 November 2011. Smit’s paintings are devoted to the deconstruction of the portrait in monumental painting and sculpture thus exposing the construction of the portrayed persona through his techniques.
Smit has been featured on the cover of Christie’s F.A.C.E.T Catalogue 2009 in London. His work is included in prestigious collections including the Standard Chartered Bank and the Laurence Graff Art Collection at the Graff Delaire wine estate.
