About the artist

Kaili Smith was born in the Netherlands (1995) and raised in Australia. Now working between Amsterdam and New York for the past 8 years.

Kaili’s current work examines inner-city youth culture, offering alternative perspectives through paintings and film. The work is influenced by his upbringing and experiences growing up, as well as art teaching and research into behavioral psychology.


His earlier works looked at different people whose lives have been subjected to globalization and merging cultural influences. From migrants fighting to enter Europe on the Moroccan border, to graffiti painters in Istanbul.


Kaili has exhibited in numerous galleries and museums in Europe and the United States. She graduated with a master’s degree in New York after receiving a full scholarship at Parsons. Her first solo exhibition in the United States, “A Utopia Where the Problems Are Not Fixed”, opened at Thinkspace Gallery in California in October 2020.

He has also participated in several group exhibitions. Most recently in 2021, the 150th Amsterdam Royal Palace Painting Prize Show won 1st place in the public prize. Other notable group exhibitions include Honolulu Museum of Art in 2018 and the Museum of Art & History in Lancaster in 2019.
