#fume #blue #bronze #patina #vapourtechnique for #artist #sculptor #lionelsmit . This #encrusted patina is very rare, since the climatic conditions need to be just right - humidity, atmospheric salt, and temperature - otherwise the blue wont be achieved. Lionel Smit is one artist who deserves this blue patina- since his paintings are predominantly so - hence allowing the patina to be the catalyst between his painting and sculpture. Was finished and exhibited at #everardreadjhb back in 2012 - and all editions (ed1-12) were sold out on the opening evening - first one going to #ellermanhouse in #capetown
Lionel Smit's "Medium Malay Girl" takes centre stage in our SUMMER group exhibition with 25 contemporary artists, currently on show at @everard_read_london until 7 September. @everard_read_cape_town_ @everard_read_johannesburg @everardreadfranschhoek #EverardReadLondon #EverardReadLondon #southafricanart #contemporaryart #artist #lionelsmit @lionelsmit

Abandon 2. Lionel Smit. 2017.
We found Lionel Smit’s ‘Transparent Behaviour no.3’, 2013 #oilonlinen 47 1/4 x 47 1/4 in. Estimate : GBP 10,000-15,000 @bonhams1793 @bonhamsafricanart #southafrican sale #london September 12, 2018 . From the #bonhams catalogue “This painting is one of a series of portraits executed in 2013/4 that explores the theme of transparency. Monumental in size, these works place the human face at the centre of the canvas, frequently filling the entire expanse. These extreme close-ups force the viewer into the sitter's personal space; looking into their eyes, we truly do feel we are looking into their souls. The portraits reveal that we do not need to scratch very deep to penetrate the facade. For the most part, our emotions and inner life are visible in our facial expressions and body language. The application of paint extends the theme of transparency. In this portrait, the young woman's face is depicted in fluid calligraphic strokes that allow the vibrant yellow background to show through. Smit has been a featured artist at #ArtMiami , 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 #BPPortrait Award in 2013, exhibited at the #NationalPortraitGallery London. His work is included in prestigious collections including the #StandardChartered Bank and the Laurence Graff Art Collection at the #GraffDelairewine estate.” 🇿🇦#southafrica #original #pieceoftheday #artislife 🎨 #lionelsmit @lionelsmit

One of my favorite art installations in Union Square is from two years ago. Lionel Smit’s “Morphous” features Roman God, Janus, whose two faces illustrate an ability to see the past and the future. #lionelsmit #morphous #janus #unionsquare #newyorkcity #artinstallations

These sculptures are done by Lionel Smit, hes a South African artist. He does large canvases and sculptures. I love these sculptures they seem to be meditating and i resonate with that. Enjoy. #lionelsmit #sculptures #iloveart #artlovesme #artislife

Art by @lionelsmit . Origin State #3 , Bronze, 2017 . When you think of it, really there are four fundamental questions of life. You've asked them, I've asked them, every thinking person asks them. They boil down to this; origin, meaning, morality and destiny. 'How did I come into being? What brings life meaning? How do I know right from wrong? Where am I headed after I die?' - Ravi Zacharias #sculpture #state #lionelsmit #lionelsmitart #southafricanart #2018 #art #bronzesculpture @isiodelavega She looks like you😁

Artwork is one of the best ways to inject intrigue and interest into a room. And because it is so subjective, it is the perfect way to reflect the personalities of those who will occupy the space. I hope one day I can hang something from Lionel Smit in my home 😍❤ #copperedcotton #lionelsmit #lifegoals #interiordesign #art

Week 19 prompt is Blind Continuous Contour Drawing, per my suggestion 😊 . @lziembicki suggested a continuous daily illustration that connects for the week. I’m going to give this a try 😬 . Day 1 - I’m using a photo I took in Union Square of a 2 Faced Goddess Sculpture by Lionel Smit. The sculpture depicts the Roman god Janus, aka god of beginnings. Has the ability to see both the past and the future. This week’s drawings are meant to look weird, abstract and unique. So here we go. #dailyart #amsterdam #nyc #godjanus #contourdrawing #handdrawn #beginnings #stephanienunezdesigns #micronpen #pattern #lionelsmit #stephanienunezdoodles #illustrator #prints #penandink #inkonpaper #inkdraw #illustration #doodles #sketchook #moleskin #dailydraw #M_artcollection #typography #handlettering #mightcoulddrawtoday
