The following is Bisco’s Artist Statement for “Process”
“The unplanned, unexpected, the collected in a corner, saved in a stack, the leftovers, the beauty, the magic in the scraps. Process is motion. It’s the forever in the moment, until it isn’t. It’s the notes, the plans, the dates, maps, and scribbles. It’s the paint that missed the canvas, the test before the print. It’s the ghost for the catching, the zone for the coasting. Process is forever unfolding.”

More about Bisco Smith: Bisco Smith (b.1980) is an American contemporary urban artist who’s work is characterized as a blend of graffiti deconstruction, abstract gesturalism, graphic design, and “visual freestyle.” Using household tools learned from painting on street walls and influenced by the process of freestyle rapping and song writing, Bisco fuses the spontaneous art forms into style-writing and action painting. His technique involves energetic, expressive brushstrokes that reflect the flow of music and translates the consciousness of the moment into painted lyrics and abstract black and white works of art. Bisco believes that art is energy transmitted through various mediums, and as such, the artist becomes the conduit.
He aims to bring a good intention to all his paintings in hopes that the energy will continue to resonate wherever the art lives. His art captures the unseen rhythms of music, the untamed energy of a moment, duality, and good intentions. Bisco has exhibited art, performed music, painted murals, and partnered with creative brands and live events worldwide. Bisco’s work is regularly exhibited in major markets and is collected by both national and international collectors. Bisco Smith currently lives and works in Venice, CA.
