Nick Smith (b. 1982, Liverpool) is an artist who explores the theme of class within the context of the built environment through video collages and photographic installations. His archive of photographs, videos, and research materials, compiled from his work as both an artist and property inspector, serves as his primary source material. Smith aims to create images that evoke a sense of connection between the past and present, focusing on moments of arrival and departure in public space, regional identity, memory, and recent history.
Smith has had solo exhibitions at OUTPUT Gallery, Liverpool; The Birley, Preston; OUTPOST Gallery, Norwich; Concord Space, L.A; and Photofusion, London. His work has been included in group shows and screenings at Two Queens, Leicester; TACO!, Thamesmead; Bloomberg New Contemporaries: Cornerhouse, Manchester and Rochelle School, London; Karst, Plymouth; Folkestone Triennial and Auto Italia, London. He holds a Master of Arts Degree in Photography from the Royal College of Art, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins. In 2023 Nick was selected as an awardee of the second edition of the LOEWE Foundation / Studio Voltaire Award.
