Generative art combining the original colors of the Mona Lisa with 8 layers of drawings and paintings. Filtered layers and hand-painted details finish the piece to marry classic figurative art with abstract digital art.
This original 1/1 piece was created from 8 separate drawings, paintings, photos and gradients layered onto one high-resolution digital canvas. This created an image filled with conflict and competition, which was then edited and filtered to find harmony (or intentional contrast) in the final image. This image is created in 8K resolution.

Jeff Smith is an abstract expressionist focusing on the conflict of color and texture, finding resolution through perceived movement within the canvas. Smith has pursued the resolution of dissonance throughout his varied career, which encompasses a number of different creative outlets. Smith is currently creating primarily within the digital art space, but his background includes fine art as well as graphic design, film, animation, and both generative and hand-painted NFTs.
Smith was born into an artistic family where his talent was fostered from a young age. His uncle, Robert Rector, is a well-known abstract artist with works in galleries and museums around the world. Rector was a guiding force and constructive critic of Smith’s early work.
Smith was a popular graphic designer for newspapers and advertising agencies during college. But as a twenty-something, Smith soured on the art-as-commerce path and lost interest in being an artist.
Instead, Smith set his sites of filmmaking and moved to Los Angeles. Over the next 14 years, Smith wrote, produced, edited and/or directed dozens of productions for various networks and studios, including 20th Century Fox, Disney and MGM. During his time in Hollywood, he received numerous Broadcast Design Awards. He also created special on-air content for the 71st Annual Academy Awards.
After retiring from the entertainment business, Smith began rediscovering his love of fine art through the new medium of digital art. He now creates abstract art and pop art from his studio in Houston, Texas with his wife Sebrina Zerkus Smith, a writer.
