Sam Smith showcases his paintings capturing every stage of the 2016 Tour de France at 49 Old St.
"My name is Sam Smith and I’m a full-time artist. I am currently working on spontaneous and colourful Tour de France paintings alongside working as a 3-minute portrait artist, drawing tourists and locals alike in Camden Market.
These paintings are a project I’ve wanted to work on for years but have never got up the guts until now. I believe that you just have to do what you want and deal with the consequences later - I love the Tour de France and painting this collection is a way for me to spend July enjoying the Tour and illustrating it as work!
"The Tour takes place in summer, when life is generally at its peak, and I associate the Tour with all things good. I hope these paintings capture that spirit and will help you on your way in life in some small yet valuable way."
During July I will also be starting a Kickstarter to fund the creation of two books: Paintings of Le Tour 2016 & 2017. If you would like to get involved in creating the book from the paintings and get some awesome rewards to boot, please head to Kickstarter.com and search for ‘Paintings of Le Tour’.
