This is a completely unique and original abstract oil painting on canvas. This painting epitomizes a technique and aesthetic I have been working to perfect over the years. The colors are vibrant and alive and the texture is highly tactile and almost edible. This piece is an exercise in soft and textured painting techniques that I have been developing. There are almost “ghosts of shapes and a fading backgound, juxtaposed with thick violent texture on the surface that jumps out at the viewer. Shapes and shards of color shatter all over the painting and lead the eye over the canvas. This piece is truly alive and energetic and is vibrant and interesting to look at from any angle. It is a PMS original oil painting like no other.

Note: This painting is painted on canvas and does not come framed. However, the sides of the piece are painted black and with the texture on the edges of the piece, framing is not recommended but up to the preference of the collector.

This painting is signed on the front and includes my Certificate of Authenticity.

About the artist:

Bio: Artist Preston M. Smith (PMS) found himself cross-eyed and with no depth perception as a child. This was the "lens" through which he developed his unique visual perspective of the world, which he now shares as a painter with his highly textured and vibrantly colorful works. Graduating from Gonzaga University with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art/Theater Arts, Preston then moved to Los Angeles where he has since worked for 15 years as a fine artist. Preston’s work can best be categorized as having a mixture of both abstract and figurative styles, many times within the same piece. His mantra for his vibrant Abstract work is "color, texture, and beauty" and they are highly textured and tactile, almost "edible". His colors are bold and his figures tend to be moody, with eyes being a major focal point. His work and life have been an expression of moving from darkness into light. Preston’s work has been showcased alongside David Lynch and at the Inaugural Purple Ball for President Obama’s Inauguration in 2009, where he was commissioned to paint 12 portraits of the President. His work was recently part of Laluzapalooza and two times at the Coaster Show at the world famous La Luz De Jesus Gallery and he also completed and auctioned off a live painting for a celebrity fundraiser for the Bring Hollywood Home Foundation late last year. Preston's artwork and mindset was also recently the subject of a documentary short directed by Tony Lugo entitled "Negativity To Creativity" and his artwork and designs have been featured in Offbeat Bride twice this year. His work is in private collections around the world as well in the homes of celebrities such as Ed Harris, Ashley Judd, Josh Lucas, and so forth.
