Alli Smith (b. 1996) is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in painting and sculpture, based in Milwaukee, WI. She uses a recurring motif of cyclops-feline creatures to propel the narratives in her artworks. Though they differ in size, pattern, and portrayal; the threads that connect them are their mythical nature and their presence as comedic relief yet emotional catharsis. Ultimately, she aims to create a contradictory feeling of lightheartedness and sorrowfulness through her artworks, and to shine light on the revelation that what is left unsaid is just as important as what we choose to disclose.
