Smith, Blaise ARHA (1967)

Blaise Smith was born in 1967. He attended the National College of Art & Design (NCAD). As a figurative painter he has exhibited widely and his work is held in many Public and Private Collections. In 1999 he completed “Roadworks”, a set of twenty four paintings depicting the men and machines of Cork County Council. The following year he painted ten paintings for Kilkenny County Council entitled “The Millenium Landscape”.

He has continued to win many awards and state commissions, most recently winning the Eigse Open Award in 2015.

Smith is currently working on “A Painting for Waterford” – a commission arising from another competitive process. This painting is a dramatic 5 metre panorama of the city of Waterford commissioned by the OPW, to act as a companion piece to the 1735 Willem Van der Hagen Waterford cityscape. Both will be unveiled in Autumn 2016.

A substantial part of Smith’s practise involves Portraiture and he has recently completed a portrait of Bernard Farrell the playwright, commissioned by the Abbey Theatre.

He was appointed Assistant Principal of the RHA Drawing School in 2013 and served on the Council of the Royal Hibernian Academy from 2013-15. He was appointed by the Minister for Education to the Board of the National College of Art and Design in 2015.
