Description

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Atlanta based artist Ben Smith is perhaps best known for creating enormous woodblock prints of shamans, wizards, and ceremonial figures. These monumental figures in ornate robes or suits of armor, with a presence impossible to ignore, summon the viewer to enter into an imaginary procession of mythological creatures.

The prints, which sometimes reach dimensions of up to 15 feet, feature bold, black designs on white back- grounds, with occasional splashes of bright color.
