Carl E. Smith is a Laguna Beac/Prague-based artist and graphic designer who has worked professionally in the action sports industry since 1995. Above is his ongoing “National Parks” series where he ever-so beautifully cuts and posts high fashion editorial and campaign images onto grand natural landscapes like rain forests and mountains and deserts.
Along with creating beautiful inspiration and creative atmosphere through his collages, Smith also continues to create his own original fine art works, realized primarily as collages conveying the beauty, excitement, ruin and rebirth of iconic elements from our everyday lives. Using symbol, color and space, he creates explosive images that live between archetypal fantasy and truth. Too good! Don’t you just want one of these hanging on your wall?
