Mexico City based artist, designer and illustrator Smithe is presenting his new series, Neon Daemon at the Montana Gallery in Barcelona.

Demons have been, from the beginning of time, archetypes of the sole force of the natural and supernatural. For Smithe, the only evil to be recognized does not inhabit in these surreal beings but in us. He has taken this introspection of the ego and mirrored it, exposing the Neon Daemon, the monster that lives inside every being. These things are not “fantasies or allegories” he states, “We are the demons. We are our worst enemy.” –Ivonne Alcántara
