Lionel Smit will exhibit a solo exhibition, called Cumulus, at Rook & Raven Gallery, London from 21 March 2014 to 30 April 2014. The exhibition showcases Smit’s interest in monumental portraiture through paintings and sculpture, using colouration inventively treating sculptural surfaces as templates for painting, and painted surfaces as opportunities for sculptural fragmentation.
Smit has been a featured artist at Art Miami, USA and been featured on the cover of Christie’s F.A.C.E.T Catalogue 2009 in London. Smit’s painting Kholiswa won the Viewer’s Choice Award at the BP Portrait Award in 2013, exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, 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.
