Dr. Smash “Superman in Chains”


Acrylic, spray paint, ink, comic book pages, vellum on wood


Dr. Smash is a contemporary Neo-Pop Artist. Using iconic imagery from cartoons, comic books,
film and advertising, he has been pushing the envelope of contemporary art. The orchestrated
collision of street art and pop art has been his balancing act. Dr. Smash works in acrylics, spray
paint, ink and assemblage. His paintings and drawings are a juxtaposition of inspiration from
TV, comic books and pop culture with a fun and eclectic twist. Trying to capture the feeling and
emotion of a moving cartoon on a flat canvas, or the mood one gets when flipping the pages of
an old comic book, Dr. Smash's work incorporates fun, strange and recognizable subjects in
disturbingly bizarre situations. Dr. Smash has a background in advertising, film and comics. His
film and TV credits include: Lovecraft Country, Fantasy Island, Solar Opposites, Dreamwork’s
3Below, Bob’s Burgers, Insidious 4, Lego: Guardians of the Galaxy, Despicable Me 2, Lego Star
Wars: The Empire Strikes Out, The Super Hero Squad Show, Marvel Heroes 4D, and Lego
Hero Factory. Dr. Smash's comic book credits include: Heavy Metal Magazine, Bob’s Burgers,
Warlash, DTOX, Zombie Terrors and Chicken Soup For Satan among others. His work has
been exhibited at the Bruce Lurie Gallery, the Black Sheep Gallery, the La Luz De Jesus
Gallery, Copro Gallery, Corey Helford Gallery, CASS Contemporary, Dark Art Emporium, Arch
Enemy Arts, Phone Booth Gallery, Night Gallery Fine Arts and Cannibal Flower.
