Robert Smith is a creative and sexy force coming out of Brooklyn. I love his energy level and passion and his ability to make you feel like your in a dreamlike state. With little limits and a lot of enthusiasm, his cerebral images, writing and video/multimedia imaging is something to keep your eye on. I first heard of him after he finished his 20 minute short film "glory holes" featuring my favorite artist Gio Black Peter in the summer of '08 in Bushwick. "glory holes is the story which follows several personal pilgrimages throughout the New York City landscape. Robert tells me he is also looking for another venue to screen this project - so? someone hook him up. His self portraits and digital work are incredible. Loose associations, yet dreamy - almost mystical and defined - its like The Cocteau Twins music put to images. Check out the movement, tones and styling of his work, fantastic! His other self portraits capture some raw sensuality like a combination of post teenage angst meets that fallen term Generation X. Robert is able to convey all kinds of messages, the one that speaks to me is "this is my life and take a look - its sullen and exciting, this is my monologue."

check out his new blog here= yea, that's the spirit
