'Satirism - sat??? ?z(?)m' a solo show by Nick Smith

Presented by ArtDog London, 'Satirism - sat??? ?z(?)m' will be exhibited from Monday 13th - Saturday 18th October. Opening times 10am-6pm, Saturday 12-6pm
Nick Smith has an MA in product design.  He originally started his degree designing cars but wanting something with a wider scope moved to product design. He has a successful career as an interior design architect for hotels, bars, restaurants and ships. Working with Patone Colour samples in his day job ignited the idea of reductive art down to the basic elements while leaving intact the iconic recognisability. 

In Target Practice Nick has taken the soup can making a Warholian screen print and shooting it full of holes with a shot gun (which had to be done in Canada as he could not get permission to do it anywhere in the UK).   Hence, taking pot shots at Warhol in the form of what is most commonly used as practice fodder for gun enthusiasts, soup cans.   

Private View: Thursday 16th October, 6-8pm.
