25 Artists to Watch in 2013

Lucien Smith

Based in: New York

Lucien Smith presented seven of his most recent rain paintings, a popular series of works by the artist famously created by means of a paint-filled fire extinguisher fired at the canvases, along with a wood chip and sound installation, at OHWOW in Los Angeles this past September. A month later, one of his pie paintings dominated Salon 94's booth at Frieze London. Smith showed another pie painting in It Ain't Fair, OHWOW's annual Miami group show, as well as a guitar piece not unlike those he exhibited at his solo at Half Gallery during Lower Manhattan's Hurricane Sandy-induced blackout. Coming up in 2013: a group show at Brand New Gallery in Milan, a book launch for Good Vibrations (the aforementioned Half Gallery show), and three solos, at Suzanne Geiss Company and Salon 94 in New York and Bill Brady Gallery in Kansas City, MO.
