My name is Keith Smith, also known as Afrokilla. I like to make public art murals for communities and create commission artwork for galleries, festivals, events, and art buyers. Let's connect!
I'm currently working on freelance commission pieces out of my studio at The Pilsen Art & Design center. However, I love movin' and groovin' around the city and I've been super tapped into the event / festival scene. Since 2015 I've live painting for a wide variety of audiences at local events. You can find my upcoming events here on my website on the events page.
This website is a collection of my artwork as I learn and grow through all of my experiences in Chicago. I received my Graphic Design degree in 2012 then suddenly became interested in creating urban, street based art. My primary focuses are creating an organic flow with acrylic and spray paint onto anything I can get my hands on. Mostly influenced by skateboarding and the people I meet throughout the city.
Please, enjoy viewing my creative process on this site. It contains of a wide range of projects I've worked on, with stories and galleries to share. I'm always grinding away in the studio to create more and more so stay tuned for updates. Current pieces for sale are located in the shop page so feel free to support!
Keep it groovy.
