Poetic jewelry paintings. Robert Smit
The Dutch artist Robert Smith is one of the leading jewelers of our time. His jewelry blurs the boundaries of traditional jewelry art, his art looks like graphics with vivid color elements and poetic context.
Robert started to make jewelry quite early: at the age of 19 he repaired jewelry for a jewelry store in his hometown Delft. During this period he met the artist Jan Schoonhoven, who belonged to the experimental Zero group and was known for his studies of light, form and volumes through sculptural reliefs, made of corrugated cardboard, papier-mâché and plywood. Robert visited the artist almost every day, fascinated by his work.
It was he who encouraged Robert to apply for the Staatliche Kunst + Werkschule in Pforzheim (Germany).
