Meet the artist & maker

Following a heart transplant in 2016, Tom was blessed with vigour, a new life, an unstoppable drive, occasional manic episodes, and a touch of synaesthesia. He started painting obsessively and just couldn't stop. These works document his life-changing and psychedelic experience. Using augmented reality technology, when a mobile phone is pointed at the paintings they reveal a further layer of audiovisual content. 

This is the first year that Tom Smith has exhibited at York Open Studios
