Bart "Smates" Smeets studied and graduated in graphic design at Sint-Lukas in Brussels, Belgium.

He has always been a fan of realistic drawings and paintings, so after graduating he followed painting classes for about two years and that helped him to become the artist he is today.

Smates started grafitti at the age of seventeen and has been a full time street artist since September 2013.

In 2019, for the International Public Art Festival (IPAF); run by Baz-Art, Smates was invited to Cape Town to paint a 400 m2 mural in Harrington Street - one of the largest public art murals in South Africa.

The mural acted as a billboard for the third IPAF that took place in Salt River and reflected the 2019 theme of "Generation Next" which features a child, dog and aviation.
