FRANS SMIT

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Frans Smit is a South African-born artist and has participated in over 50 exhibitions locally and internationally.

Smit focuses mainly on portraiture and still lives, which blends in a degree of abstraction.

His pieces are all oil-based artworks, which exhibit a natural and organic balance between the palette and textures used.

Smit’s work mixes the abstract with the real. His intent is to disrupt the traditional portrait, bringing a sense of distress and the absurd.
