Mark Smith (b 1976, Melbourne) is a figurative multidisciplinary artist who works across painting, ceramics, mixed media, video and soft sculpture. Working with emotion as a starting point, he is concerned with how the body relates to human nature and the human condition. He considers the body a non-negotiable starting point for existence. Smith has worked in the Arts Project studio since 2007 and had his first solo exhibition in 2017. He has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions including Spring 1883, Robin Gibson Gallery, No Vacancy Gallery, c3 Contemporary and The Substation. His work is held in the Monash University Museum of Art and Moreland City Council collections and is held in private collections Australiawide.
