Born and raised in south county of St. Louis, Den Smith is a confirmed suburbanite. After a little bout of wandering and wondering he moved back to his roots in 1991 and lives in the small township of Green Park, Missouri where he creates art in his garage studio. Den has been creating art for over four decades, exploring and expanding on his reflections of who we are, where we came from and where are we going through narrative images. Den finds scrap wood he carves and fabricates parts out of, as well as found items and metals to assemble his art. Paint is his final enhancement, using a variety of types and techniques to complete his pieces. Each work Den produces evolves into a new direction with new wonders and wanderings.
