Australian born Artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bianca Smith works from her Shop Gallery with Studio in Battersea, London.
Bianca paints horses in an array of equestrian events, such as polo, dressage, show jumping, racing etc in her well-honed abstract cubist style paintings with her signature look of thin black lines over abstract shapes painted in oil and acrylic paint. Bianca mainly works to commission and is very happy to do her abstract interpretation of both the client and their horse, working from clients’ own archive of photographs to achieve a completely personal painting.
