Contemporary expressionist painter Solly Smook explores concepts relating to the uniqueness of emotion and the importance of it in our spiritual lives. His process in creating art attempts to rethink the conventions of portrait painting through a continued pursuit of the more contemporary, with a goal to create paintings that engage with matters beyond what is immediately visible, quite often consciously and reflexively questioning the nature of spiritual identity as something deconstructed, created and tangible.

With more than 40 successful group and solo exhibitions under his belt, Solly’s art has found its way into various private collections all over the world. It has been auctioned at the Foundling Museum in London in aid of Foodbank Africa, and it featured in the group exhibition ‘The Rainbow Experience’ at Mandela Rhodes Place in Cape Town under the auspices of the Mirca Art Group, with proceeds going to Amnesty International.
