Rich Smukler has blended his life-long passion for art and photography. His works have been featured in numerous museums, galleries and private collections internationally. While his cutting edge passion for graphic design has earned him accolades and awards for innovative style, his genre as a fine art photographer encompasses photo-realism to abstract graphic design. A love of Tuscany has taken him back to bella Italia on many occasions, camera in tow, in search of yet another perfect moment. He has drawn inspiration from such greats as Miro, Kandinsky, Pollock, Joan Mitchell, Arno Minkkinen, Sandro Santioli & Cartier Bresson.
