Smithe is an urban artist, illustrator and Mexican designer who has spent more than a decade working on his style and perfecting the narrative of his images, along with his artistic and creative work for the fashion brand Tony Delfino.

Influenced by Japanese anime, the graphic style of the 50s and science fiction movies, at the age of 13 he begins to paint graffiti just for fun and as a hobby. Self-taught and evolving, attracted by the fine arts, Smithe has constantly reinvented his own style and in recent years has dealt with many issues in his work, such as existentialism, the individuality of the human being and the machine inside.

Smithe has exhibited his work in galleries in Mexico, the United States, Germany and England. His murals can be seen in those same countries as well as Spain and Belgium.
