About the Artist:
Born Russell Brown (1919-2005) in Dayton, Ohio, he said he was “reborn as the folk artist Smoky Brown” when he became sober in 1979 after years of drug and alcohol addiction. Brown moved to Columbus in 1976 to begin his life as a full-time artist and community service volunteer. After a lengthy rehab, he lived in Metropolitan Hall, a halfway house for addicts at the time. One of Brown's ways of giving back to Metropolitan Hall was to paint its walls with his stunning murals.
Great condition, framed in original frame by the artist.
