PERCEPTION IS REALITY MATT SMILEY ART EXHIBIT STARTS TONIGHT IN TORONTO

Hello Folks,

While some of you may not be able to see it, I should let you know that my art exhibit at The Vintage Conservatory in Toronto starts tonight through May 16, 2012. But don’t worry, I’m preparing a show in Los Angeles for the month of May.

I’ve been inspired walking the streets here. I love the mixed-culture and watching people, so I’ve decided to add 4 more pieces to the exhibit tonight (see one included below).

Tomorrow, I’m off to Los Angeles, then to Coachella over the weekend! So excited for The Black Keys, Radiohead, Beirut, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog. It’s going to be a wild party!

Cheers,

Matt

Toronto –

Hello Everyone,

I just read in ‘What’s AGO: what’s on art gallery of ontario’ that 147 masterpieces from the Picasso museum in Paris  are going to be shown from May 1 – August 25 with pre-showings, April 27, 28 & 29. I really wish I was in the city longer, as it would be a joy to see his works outside of Paris. Whenever I’m in France, I always make an effort to visit the Picasso Museum, as it always fuels my creativity.

Today, I spent a majority of the day walking around the streets of Toronto. It was a beautiful sunny day and the perfect time to visit the various art galleries to see what emerging artists were producing. I liked some of the pieces I saw at the Blue Dot Gallery. There were two amazing sculptures that I would die to own one day.

At 11pm, I visited the private wine lounge where I am hosting my exhibit on Tuesday night at The Vintage Conservatory. It was a pleasure chatting with the members and seeing my work with the night lighting. I’m really looking forward to the party next week. It will be a blast.

Here are two sneaks peaks of some pieces that are going to be included in the exhibit. I will be adding 4 more pieces:

Never Forget to Play
Harlequin Dream

Happy Easter Sunday !
