Greg Smith is a musician and self taught visual artist working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. His music took him across Canada and then the world, playing with different artists. In 2004 while on the road with The Weakerthans, he began sketching scenes he found compelling and painted these scenes from the sketches and memory when he returned home from tour. These paintings were part of his first show at The Sixth Gallery in Toronto, in 2009.
He has had three shows of his work and done album cover art for albums for Ford Pier and The Weakerthans. In 2008 he was nominated for a West Coast Music Award for Best Album art for his work on The Weakerthans Live at the Burton Cummings Theatre.
