Lee’s influences are varied, however, he has a very strong respect for classic painters from 1300 AD onwards, especially, Turner, Van Gogh, and German expressionists. Then, of course, contemporary artist/painters yet to be discovered.
Lee says “Everyone is an artist if they are passionate about their job or whatever it is they do. Painting is the passion/job i have chosen for my life. I have no particular political, intellectual or spiritual intentions in my work. It is solely instinctive expression. I paint what I see and feel.”Lee Smith was born in Coventry in 1972 and currently lives in Glastonbury.
