Ian Smith, Artist & Performer, 02/01/1959 – 01/08/2014 back to listing

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of artist and performer, Ian Smith, a figure well known and loved within the UK Outdoor Arts community.  

As Neil Butler, his close friend and collaborator of 35 years, writes in Ian’s obituary, “Ian Smith, who has died aged 55 after a long struggle with severe depression, was an artist, performer, art gangster and mischief maker. He leaves a massive legacy of work and memories for the hundreds who have worked with him and his company, Glasgow-based Mischief La Bas.”

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family, wife Angie, children Stanley and Lilly, parents Don and Heather and brother Alan.
