Gurevich Fine Art: Cyrus Smith

Opening Reception
Gurevich Fine Art, 200 – 62 Albert Street
June 3, 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm

After graduating from the University of Manitoba with a BFA with Honours, Cyrus Smith has been actively participating in numerous group shows at institutions including: 
Gallery 1.1.1., Plug In ICA, and the Winnipeg Art Gallery. His work has been published in Border Crossings Magazine, Toro Magazine, The National Post, and shown on CBC ‘Artspots’. Smith has been written about in The Globe and Mail and Maclean’s

Smith is producing work at a hyper velocity in many different mediums including assemblage, painting, sculpture, photography, video, and performance. 
Aesthetically, his work ranges from Post Formalism to Dumpster Pop. 

Cyrus Smith works on a grand scale - first as a graffiti artist painting the brick walls and train cars of Winnipeg and now with acrylic on canvas. Sensitivity and generosity are fused with a cynical edge using libertarian socio-political concerns of contemporary Canadians.
He experiments with colour and form, fusing modernist aesthetics to pressing issues like genetic modification, global warming and war.
