Kaili Smith was Born in the Netherlands (1995), and raised in Melbourne Australia. His work deals with inner-city youth culture, displaying mundane scenarios of friendships & connectivity. The works also examine the social construct around “youth criminality” and young people growing up in environments where they often face elements of criminality around them, offering alternative perspectives through paintings and film. The work is influenced by his upbringing and experiences as a child, but also an ongoing growing understanding through teaching art and research into psychology.

After graduating with a masters degree in fine arts at Parsons in New York. His next solo exhibition “A Utopia Where The Problems Are Not Fixed.” Is set to open October 17th at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles. The reference to a “Utopia” in the shows title is based on the loyalty, trust and love that is built within these imperfect environments.
