"Winston Smith's collage art is a cutting socio-political commentary on the late 20th Century. Irreverent in style, each unique piece is bursting with color and kinetic ideas."
- H.R. Giger
Punk Art Surrealist Winston Smith, a master of "hand-carved" collage, has been crafting his thought-provoking art since the 1970's. After being abroad for six years, Winston returned to America and was astonished by the complacency the American public exhibited towards the corporate domination in their society. Winston began taking "safe" images from magazines and combining them to create politically charged works of art that challenge the viewer to confront incongruities and political paradoxes of modern society.
His work has been included in numerous books chronicling the punk rock era as well as having his work included in art text books plus several book covers, such as Greg Palast's best-sellers "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy" and "Armed Madhouse". In addition, Winston has designed over 50 record covers including covers and insert art for Dead Kennedys, Jello Biafra, Green Day, Burning Brides, George Carlin and Ben Harper.
