Photorealism is Smug's style. These ultra precise, realistic and colorful creations amaze and challenge. Using only aerosol cans, Smug achieves the feat of transforming a photo into a monumental work by adding a personal touch. The photo inspires him, while the wall, its texture and size, leads him to overcome practical obstacles which then give a unique character to his creations which can be much more original than the original photo. Coming from the world of graffiti and hip-hop culture, Smug, aka Sam Bates, sees his art as a game and likes to add a touch of humor to each of his works. Born in Australia, Smug now lives in Scotland and is one of the greatest artists of street art and photorealism.
