ABOUT PHILIP SMALLWOOD
Philip Smallwood is an award-winning artist (having garnered over twenty-five featured articles, with 200+ juried awards and honors throughout his career) and is one of the top contemporary artists working in traditional realism. He has been blending imagination, reality, and social consciousness for more than 20 years, with a steadily increasing level of recognition for his work. Known primarily for his enduring series called Lifescapes, a powerful form of portraiture and visual narrative., Smallwood is a visual storyteller whose narratives embrace "real people living real, honest, imperfect, and totally unrehearsed lives," that merge color with shadow, focus with juxtaposition, and gravity with irony.
