Phil Smith is a poet, writer, musician, artist and teacher. Mr. Smith began writing poetry when he was 8 years old and become a well-published poet and editor (Gegenschein Press). In 1987, Mr. Smith began to paint. Since 1987 I have had numerous one person and group shows of my artwork in the U.S. and Europe most recently (April 2012) at the Musée Création Franche in Bégles, France. In 1994, Mr. Smith opened my first gallery (Wares For Art) in Soho, NY. Since then Mr. Smith has curated shows of art and produced performances of music and performance art. Mr. Smith is the U.S. representative for a number of European and American outsider artists. Mr. Smith has written a number of articles on Outsider art for Raw Vision magazine (England) and Out of Art (Netherlands).
Mr. Smith is presently on the boards of Pure Vision Arts (New York), Musée Création Franche (France) and Van Der Plas Gallery, NYC.
