His works have been published in Black Artists on Art, Art Papers, and Selected Essays; Art and Artists from the Harlem Renaissance to the 1980’s.

Smith was quoted as saying about his work, “The images which have evolved from my life force have always been spiritual/cultural. The infinity of ancestral spirits have been a central recurring theme in my work. Through the line, color and textures which give shape to these images, I have sought to evoke the subtlety and polyrhythmic intensity of African music which conducts our spirit throughout the ‘Diaspora’.”
