Tom Abbiss Smith

Tom Abbiss Smith is an illustration graduate from Norwich University of the Arts, UK.  He explores shape and form to produce abstract designs and illustrations that are frequently applied as surface pattern design to clothing, homeware products, packaging, posters and accessories. On an interview with Find Liaison he says this about inspiration: 

“It’s probably going to sound very cliche, but everything I see around me on a daily basis. If you really look around you and observe, there are beautiful textures, shapes, colors, etc. everywhere. I love that there is the possibility to reappropriate all of these things into artwork. Nature is perhaps the most prominent inspiration to my work, however. There’s so much variation when looking at it, and that excites me a lot.”
