"The Artists of Tomorrow.....Today"

David Smith created this company to distribute and promote what he coined "The Artists of Tomorrow...... Today!"  He looks for Artists, using new art techniques, that are unique to bring styles you will not find anywhere else.

"There is an abundance of talent that is unrecognized in the Art World due mostly to the short sited, stuck in their ways, gallery community. There is a belief that if it hasn't been done before it isn't Art. Well we the Artists and Publisher have proven them wrong over and over. When I hear from an Artist that no galleries will take them, I become very interested. It is either because they do suck, or they are so innovative, that stuffy old Galleries don't get it. Well I get it, and I seem to have good taste in art, probably because I knew nothing about what art was "supposed" to be."


"I think its funny when I start an artist, I am told that the Artist and Art isn't good enough by a Gallery. Then years after I make them famous the same Galleries are trying hard to find any artists, now copying the style of the Artist that created it. I guess to show how innovative they are years after we started the movement. I guess ego overpowers good business decisions."

Smith has focused on one thing over the two decades, innovation. We have put all of our energy into finding the most innovative artist that have created their own genre of art to guarantee that you wont find anything else like it anywhere else. Through the constant changing world of art one thing has remained the same, Artist Group Ink continues to bring you the most captivating art in the industry. David Smith has never succumbed to the influence of traditional art, he's a visionary and has found a way to share that with all of us. 

Michael Godard "The Rock Star of the Art World" was my first discovery.I remember calling him and saying "We are going to make a lot of money!" when he asked why I think that?, I stated "because other artists are refusing to show in the same gallery, one even said. I won't show my art with crap like that!"  1 year later we were doing $10mil in sales and had sold 36,000 limited edition prints... I guess the public must have really bad taste!"
