Kaili Smith was born in the Netherlands and raised in Australia. 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 a child as well as teaching experience 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.
