There isn't an accurate definition of art, if I have to describe what art is, I would say that it´s something created by the imagination to express feelings, ideas or thoughts. Art has been always part of my life. For 2 years, I was the organizer of art exhibitions of Dann Carlton Hotel in Medellin, Colombia. I chose the artists and loved meeting them, getting to know their work and talk about their inspiration, their concept, the way they see the world.
Last night, I went to the opening of the Art Exhibition of South African Artist Lionel Smit, which was held at Circa Gallery in Johannesburg. His work was absolutely fantastic, from canvas to bronze sculptures, seeing his different techniques was a very interesting way of spending the night.
Smit is from Pretoria. He is considered one of South Africa´s most talented artists. His art is defined by a deeply and symbiotic relationship between sculpture and painting. It was so delightful to see every single piece of his creative work in big and small formats.
Lionel is the son of another well known South African artist named Anton Smith. Since little, he was exposed to the world of sculpture through his father, who worked from his studio adjacent to the family home in Pretoria.
Observing this bronze sculpture was like watching a hologram, every single line and detail were really impressive. I wonder, how long he took doing this artistic piece?
I went with my husband and my Colombian friend Sofia who is also passionated about art. We both love painting... after this exhibition, we are very motivated to produce our own art exhibition together! Lets see if we can make it ;)
This was my favorite one.

So glad that we met Lionel Smit and we could tell him how amazing his work is.
If you are in Johannesburg, don't miss this exhibition at Circa Gallery, Rosebank. Well worth seeing!
