Zak - 2,13% starving, 97,87% artist
Over the past year, monsieur Zak Smith has become my favourite Jeune Artiste Furieux – not only because his drawings and paintings are so romantically rebellious and achingly intimate, but also because it’s an enormous pleasure to get emails from him.

So far, we’ve discussed topics like sending DNA extracted from his blue/yellow/green hair to a Swiss lab to clone an army of ZakArtBots, the melancholy beauty of zits, the art of starvation & the starvation of the arts, as well as the deplorable nonexistence of squirrels in Brooklyn.
From Zak I learned that
“Pride is only useful as an antidote to shame, so keep it in a bottle and don’t let it out much.”
Recently, however, Zak started to read my mind – which I find rather uncanny:
“[...] Unless this is one of those things where you write me e-mails pretending to have a crush on me and then take my responses and make some art project out of them – I hate that.”
Thanks for not letting sudden fame play treacherous games with you, Zak.
