Chinda Smith

"Swimming in the Sea"

Originally born in Laos, Chinda Smith moved to England at the age of two. This shift in diaspora is a central theme in her work. As she comments on the erasure of identity and a sense of absence, existing in a state of limbo, and not being able to find belonging in any physical space. However, through her art, Smith has found refuge in her memories of childhood, a blend of two cultures. ...

Smith uses her practice as a form of escapism from the overwhelming. Finding moments of quiet to depict and ground herself in. She gravitates toward painting, whereby images in the mind can easily be translated onto a surface. A sublime color palette and reference towards light gives the imagination dimension.

Chinda Smith is an emerging artist and a recent graduate of the prestigious Royal Drawing School in London.
