Michael Braceland Smith, Abstract Constructionist, on Live it Up with Donna Drake
Michael began his journey as an artist a child growing up in the 70’s in Islandia, Long Island. Early on he would spend time at a neighbor’s house learning techniques like macramé and découpage with his friend’s mom. Crafting with his hands, was something he discovered he liked to do. On a trip to the Guggenheim, with his Mom, he was entranced by mobiles made by the artist Alexander Calder. He found himself attracted to pop art, modern art, optical illusion, mobiles and kinetic art.
