Punk-surrealist Winston Smith has been crafting provocative collage art since the 1970s when he returned after nearly seven years abroad and was astonished by the complacency of the American public toward the role of corporate enterprise.  He took the “happy” icons of the 1940s magazine ads and created political art that challenges the viewer to confront the political paradoxes of modern society.

Since 1980, his collaborations with Dead Kennedys became widely known and his art beloved for its humorous social commentary.  The “DK” logo that Smith designed for the band remains the international symbol of protest against authoritarianism. His album covers, inserts and flyers served as a beacon for burgeoning political artists.

Smith’s art has been on over 50 album covers for recording artists Green Day, Burning Brides, Ben Harper, Jello Biafra, George Carlin and many more.
