Mandy Smith

Mandy Smith is a 2018 BA (Hons) in Fine Art graduate from Solent University. Mandy works with a variety of media including sculpture and print making. The first of her heritage print range ‘Southampton Heritage Cityscape’ 2016 was one of 4 artworks that won an open submission competition and was on display for a year, printed supersize onto brick vinyl on the West Quay shopping centre wall between the existing shopping centre and the new leisure outlets. The lively print composition pulls together some of the historic and important buildings that survived the WWII bombings and that can still be seen in the city today. Since then Mandy has expanded the range to include ‘Southampton Old Town’ and ‘Southampton Arcades’ as well as the brightly coloured 'Pop' set of prints and a limited edition print 'Southampton Sailing' to mark the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower.
