Jaden Smith reveals hidden love for making and hiding art
    2017-March-1  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    The latest celebrity to dabble in making contemporary art is Jaden Smith — and he’s going about it in quite an unusual way. Rather than seeking official representation, Smith has been dropping off his paintings outside Los Angeles art galleries, and alerting his fans about the potential free art on Twitter, reports the Fader.

    Smith’s first Tweet, posted on February 23, revealed a narrow black canvas featuring the phrase “Will you die with me” written across a white band on the upper third of the painting. The opus was left outside the Hamilton-Selway Fine Art Gallery in West Hollywood.

    Within the hour, a young man named Kevin Doan had responded with a photograph of himself holding the painting, writing “THANK U.”

    The following day, Smith shared a photo of another, smaller white work propped up against a stop sign outside Living Spaces in Panorama City, a furniture store. “I hope you enjoy it and have a good day,” he wrote, asking only that “Whoever has it take a picture.”

    The 18-year-old is the son of actors Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, and rose to prominence as a child actor in such films as “The Pursuit of Happiness” in 2006 and the “The Karate Kid” remake. In 2016, Smith became the new face of Louis Vuitton and attracted considerable attention for modeling in women’s clothes and sporting on-trend gender-bending attire off the runway as well.

    Speculation has it that Smith may have been inspired to tap into his artsier side by fellow former child actor Shia LaBeouf, who with his partners Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, initiated a planned four-year anti-Donald Trump performance piece, titled “He Will Not Divide Us” (2017), at New York’s Museum of Moving Image in January.

    In October, Smith was also spotted at the 2016 LACMA Art + Film Gala, a star-studded event honoring artist Robert Irwin and filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow.
