Anton Smit Sculpture Garden, Bronkhorstspruit

Anton Smit, SculptorAnton Smit is a South African sculptor who began his career at age sixteen when he won his first sculpting competition. Since then, he was awarded first prize in the SA Association of Arts’ New Signatures Competition in 1979 and has never looked back.

Following successful exhibitions in Nelspruit, White River, Cape Town and Pretoria, Smit turned to sculpting full-time to cope with the demand for his work by galleries and private collectors alike.

With works permanently on display at the Pretoria and Pietersburg Art museums and major art galleries across the country, the artist is fast becoming one of South Africa’s more important sculptors.

During 1990, international recognition came in the form of exhibitions in Rome and Milan, an invitation to exhibit in New York and Hong Kong as well as a return exhibition in Italy in 1993. More exhibitions have followed in Bonn, Washington, Singapore, Koln and Amsterdam.
