About Anthony Smith

Anthony has a life-long interest in both natural history and art and it is through his sculptures that he combines these twin passions. A fascination for Natural History led Anthony study Zoology at Cambridge University, after which he set up a studio and began his career as a sculptor, teaching himself the traditional sculpting methods of the 19th-century masters.   His wildlife sculptures are inspired by his travels and direct observations of animals in the wild, supported by studies of animal anatomy and behaviour. He has also developed a passion for that most challenging form of sculpture – human portraiture. He is skilled at using limited reference material to create accurate depictions of historical figures, with a special interest in great scientists and explorers. From the age of eighteen, Anthony began exhibiting his first bronze wildlife sculptures in London and soon also developed an interest in human figure sculpture, inspired by the works of Rodin, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, and Jules Dalou. After graduating from University in 2005, he set up a sculpting studio in Cambridge and began working on commissioned sculptures. In 2009 he was commissioned to create a life-sized bronze statue of the young Charles Darwin for Cambridge University. The statue was unveiled by HRH Prince Philip on the bicentenary of Darwin`s birth, and subsequently short-listed for the Marsh Award for Best Public Sculpture of the Year. In 2013 Anthony`s statue of Alfred Russel Wallace was unveiled by Sir David Attenborough at the Natural History Museum in London - the first new state commissioned for the Museum in more than eighty years. The sculpture has subsequently been short-listed for the Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture. Anthony Smith, Sculptor, is an Associate Member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London, and lives and works in Amsterdam.

Customer comment on 'Rainbow 1 (Curved Arched Modern abstract Carved Wooden statue)' by Liliya Pobornikova
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
