About Charles Smith

I was born in Shaw Mississippi, and raised in Chicago Illinois on Englewood South Side. My love for art like most artists began at an early age. My father spoke of a time when I was a little boy about three or four, playing on the floor with paints and paper creating my own style of art. My mother thought I was making a mess while my father said “he will be a great artist one day.” I attended Benjamin Banneker Grammar School. It was here that I learn I could make money off of my art, selling drawings of super heroes like Spiderman, Daredevil and the Hulk. My popularity grew and I became the boy that could draw anything, which helped with my lunch money. My artwork is my experiences of life's realities and opportunities for me to use my creative skills and personal insights. I use my creative skills to create innovative and attractive designs that have generated a strong demand in Englewood South Side in the past. I enjoy challenging work where I can utilize my abilities that I have developed through my life’s experiences and education, always with the opportunity for professional growth based on my performances. I have had the opportunity to work with such artists like, Samuel Akainyah, Scott Butler and The Summervilles. I have an honorable mention from K.K.C. and C.S.U. arts Departments. I have an Associate Degree in Applied Science from Kennedy King College and a Bachelor of Art from Chicago State University. I have worked at Little Black Pear Art & Design Center as a Clay Instructor, a Photo Technician for Potter Studio, a Silk Screener for General Loose Leaf and a Paste-Up Artist for Arco Garment Printers. Today I am move focus on making masks of digital form and 3-D. I have created 16 masks in 3-D form and over 20 in digital form. I was inspired by Dan Parker’s (author of African Art The Diaspora and Beyond) class at Chicago State University. And influenced by studies of multiple African cultures. I have developed a visual hybrid of these cultures, combining many of the features from multiple cultures that tie in with stories adapting new folklore with my masks.
