Sei Smith is a Japanese-American artist that lives and works in New York. Smith fixates on reflection, light, and the interaction between object, viewer, and context. He creates minimal and dynamic compositions that playfully challenge one’s perception of the phenomenal world. After studying painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Smith had his first solo exhibition in 2011 and has since shown work at galleries, museums, and art fairs in Miami, Chicago, New York.
