Acid Illustrations and Street Art by Smith
“It’s really cool to see how an artist create his own universe by assimilating and creating relationships between symbols and images. Smithe got a serious relation with the concepts of construction, destruction, structure and the self as we can see on most of his artworks.”
Think of things
only a hobo knows:
Like how a hedgehog’ll run
the way his hedgerow goes.
How the cold sleet’ll eat you
when the North wind blows.
How the crickets chirp quicker
where the green corn grows.
How to tramp through manure,
come out smelling like a rose…

“Sasha, a young Russian artistocratic girl at the end of the 19th century, dreams of the Great North and languishes over Oloukine, her grandfather, a renowned scientist and Arctic explorer, who has not returned from his last expedition to conquer the North Pole.
He transmitted his vocation to Sasha which is far from satisfying her parents as they have already arranged for their daughter to marry.
She revolts against this destiny, flees and is resolved to going to join Oloukine a longway north.”
“Victo’s real name is Ngai Chuen Ching.
She was born and raised in Hong Kong.
She got her English name, Victoria, when she was in a British kindergarten as Ngai Chuen Ching was too hard to pronounce for the foreign teachers.
However, “Victoria” was too hard for her fellow Chinese classmates, so they started calling her Victo instead. Since “Ngai Chuen Ching” was only called/yelled by teachers or parents when Victo got into troubles, she decided she likes the name “Victo” better.”
