Tony Smith

Exciting Limited Edition Motor Racing Prints

Tony Smith knew from his earliest childhood days that he wanted to be an artist. His brother Gerald and he grew up with the smell of linseed oil and turpentine, watching their father paint for his living at home in Birmingham. Drawing was second nature to both of them.

After
graduating from art school with a distinction, Tony's parents, knowing the fickleness of the fine art world, decided he should have a proper job. He was therefore sent to work in one of Birmingham’s biggest advertising agencies for five years, after which he completed a year’s national service as an infantryman. Neither were happy experiences, painting always remained his first and foremost love.

Tony
became passionate about motor racing in the mid forties at a time when there was no racing, so all his research was developed from books about the pre-war period of motor sport. The only speed Tony could personally indulge in was cycling and he became a keen racing cyclist. His first major journey took him from Birmingham to Silverstone for the 1948 Grand Prix, which he enjoyed immensely.

Tony Smith's
subjects have ranged from portrait painting & drawing planes, Trains and military scenes, but it is the challenge of capturing speed in motor racing that occupies most of his time.

Another
of Tony's passions is building sports cars, something he has done since long before he was even able to obtain a driving licence.
