Artist Alex Smith is self-taught, and finds inspiration in American tattoo aesthetic, street art, and printmaking. Her artwork often relfects her appreciation for the dead, and the supernatural. Death is not something to be feared, but even more of a reason to reflect on our ancestors that have come before us. The time we have here is limited, so we must make our lives count. The artist hopes for more discourse about the contributions of Haitian-Americans and African diaspora religions to American culture.
