here are some clips from my interview on design*sponge with artistic sensation, cedric smith. cedric is known for marrying bold, bright colors with vintage photographs of african-americans. he layers paint, photos, paper and fabric with the same finesse with which he layers different messages to the viewer. behind every seemingly nostalgic and whimsical portrait, cedric subliminally acknowledges the absence of the african-american presence in advertising. In addition to the powerful messages and ideas that it inspires, his work is just plain beautiful.
