Born in 1921 Smart spent the early part of his career exhibiting with fellow artists in South Australia and Victoria. In 1948 he departed to the USA, on what was to become the first of many journeys abroad, which resulted in the Yale University acquiring one of his works. The following year he headed for Europe, and spent some time studying under Fernand Leger at the Academie Montmatre, Paris.

Smart has continually travelled, living in Italy for a considerable period, in England and in Australia. He has had many one-man shows throughout the world, his first in England being in 1967 at the Redfern Gallery.
In 1978 he saw the Cezanne exhibition in Paris, and in a review of his Australian Galleries exhibition of the same year, Mary Eagle notes, “...container trucks projecting cornerwise, rows of receding zebra signs and zooming roads are Smart’s modern equivalent to the architectural space definers used by Italian Renaissance painters-who were equally fascinated by spatial volume.”
