The Life and Times of a South African Sculptor

Widely revered for his overwhelming heads and monumental African sculptures, evoking themes of suffering, reconciliation, glory and sublimation, his works grace public and private collections countrywide and internationally.

“Spoken verse, the echoes of emotive lyrics and the rasping of sculptures in progress are customary sounds emitted from his studio. Larger than life, Anton Smit is the embodiment of poetry, an apt term for this sculptor, derived from the term “making”.

Pictured here is his ‘Faith’ statue:

“I lift my eyes to You,
To You whose throne is in heaven.
In complete submission to God.”

– Anton Smit
