  • Product description
    Self portrait of Ohio artist and local legend Smoky Brown captures his essence with a found board, complete with mounted paintbrush. A muted palette creates the visage of the artist with loose brush strokes and his classic folksy style. The white paint brush mounted to his hand is a nod to his affinity for using reclaimed and repurposed materials. Signed, and therefore titled, at the top of the piece in blue. 
    About the Artist:
    Smoky Brown (1919-2005) was an enigmatic folk artist from Dayton, Ohio who valued art and service to his Columbus community. Larger than life, Smoky was a storyteller and wove his stories into his paintings. Smoky Brown created art because he enjoyed it, and did not pursue a larger platform past his regional recognition. He regularly played with materials and methodology due to necessity, but his inventiveness only fueled his process and drive.
