Christine Olga Smith
I grew up in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. After graduating from Parsons School of Design (Paris & NY) with a degree in Communication Design in 2008, and founded my own art space dedicated to cultivating and promoting contemporary art practices internationally in a small coastal town of Porto Heli called, Blue Fig Art.
My animations and designs in print are always about sharing a message of peace, love and happiness. They are works mainly inspired by the places I have lived, and nature; and the prints, t-shirts and blanket are the same works made accessible to everyone.
My paintings are seascapes and scenes from the Greece that are part of my everyday environment; as well as the island of Bahrain in the Middle East and the USA. They are always painted en plein air (from nature).
