Dylan Garrett Smith is an artist/printmaker. Growing up in the punk and hardcore scene of Northeast Pennsylvania, he began exploring forms of printmaking at a young age to create shirts and patches for friend’s bands, as well as his own, using cardboard stencils and spray paint. Through this basic method of image making, he was able to teach himself crude, basic screen-printing. Since then he has earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in printmaking from Pratt Institute of Art in Brooklyn. Smith’s current work is made primarily through drawing techniques, using ashes, chalk lead and ink, exploring occultism and solitude, as well as the relationships, and continually growing distance, between humans and the natural world.
