Bisco Smith

Urban Art, Graffiti

May 16, 2013

Bisco Smith is an American contemporary urban artist who emerged from New York’s Hip Hop scene in the early 2000’s. Bisco’s work is characterized as a blend of graffiti deconstruction, abstract gesturalism, graphic design, and visual freestyle. Using household tools learned from painting on street walls and influenced by the process of freestyle rapping, Bisco fuses the spontaneous art forms into style-writing and action painting. His technique involves energetic, expressive brushstrokes that reflect the flow of music and translates the consciousness of the moment into painted lyrics and abstract black and white works of art.
