Another show to check out at the Moniker International Art Fair in London is a solo from Kaili Smith at the Thinkspace Gallery booth. The new series of “Le Petit Prince” paintings from the ¬†Netherlands-born and Australia-raised artist deal with the issues of youth criminality through the lens of his experience hearing the famous childrens’ story from his French mother as a child. Smith, who himself spent jail time for graffiti while young, wanted to present works that explore the¬†perspective of the children who find themselves “growing up in an environment of crime, while at the same time showing the strength that children often find through this lifestyle.”

Take a look at more images of the work below as well as check out an interview here with the artist if you would like to learn more.
