Terry Smith (born 1956) London, UK is currently based in Folkestone. In 2008, Smith was a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Award. He is known for his wall cuts in derelict buildings and museums.
In 1995, having been refused permission, Smith broke into a series of buildings in the East End of London and began the first of his site-specific interventions. This led in 1996 to an invitation from the Tate, to create new work in the building that was to become Tate Modern.
Smith has exhibited internationally in Museums, galleries and derelict buildings. These include the British Museum, London, MACBA in Barcelona, The Fogg Museum, Boston, The Museo de Arte Contemporaneo in Mexico, the Museu Bellas Artes in Caracas and at The Drawing Center, NY.  Since 2007 he has added performance into his practice with The Foundling at Ca' Pesaro, Museo Internazionale D’Art, Venice (2013) and the ICA London in 2015. His most recent show in 2019 was a group show curated by The Artists Agency at the Eagle Gallery in London.
Drawing and text are his main daily pursuits, during lockdown he has embarked on a new series of works on paper, Rembrandt Reimagined as well as a new performance work, Walk Stand Still
“Rembrandt’s work and in particular the self portraits have obsessed me over the years. Artists have always used their own body and image, it's cheap and available. This is just as relevant today with performance art, dance and with many contemporary artists practice.“
