This Ben Smith Warped Writing collection plays on some modern art styles in a clever way that really sets him apart from his peers. Using a bold print that he has distorted and manipulated to create visually appealing pieces is on point with the in-your-face print seen on graphic shirts. Ben Smith's work goes a step further, because the way that he distorts the text adds to the meaning of the work.
For example, the 'heatwave' piece is distorted so that the actual text is wavy. Even more clever is the 'Jesus Li(v)es' poster, which is black text on a yellow background with the "V" falling out of "lives" so that it says "lies." It's clever and provocative, so what's not to like? Add in some sexy ladies and a muted pastel color palette and it becomes clear why Ben Smith is getting so much attention.
