Who is Saulee.Smith
Born in Atlanta Georgia to middle-class parents Saulee had a life full of opportunity. Both of his birth parents appreciated the arts and pushed him to follow his passion. However, Saulee's early years were pervaded by emotional and physical abuse. The nuances of such experiences shaped his perception as an artist, sparking an interest in telling people's stories through portraits and recreations of memories. Saulee Smith explores the ideas of connection and individual storytelling; with grand reconstructions of intimate memories that invite the viewer to interact with the space and question the relationships they have with them. Through portraiture and installation works Saulee tugs at the concealed emotions of his subjects' and the connection they have to who they believe themselves to be.
