Melting Man Battles Self Doubt
Acrylic on wood panel
Jawsh Smyth paints and draws pop-surreal scenes of self-discovery using an alter ego he calls Melting Man. This aspirational being, made of fluid abstract shapes, is on a quest to unlock creative potential, overcome self doubt, and transform fear and angst into colorful and positive solutions for a world growing warmer and perhaps more unstable. Jawsh introduced Melting Man in his first solo show, “Hot Mess” in 2017 at Civil Coffee, and has shown in group shows at various galleries around Los Angeles, including La Luz de Jesus and most recently at Giant Robot.
