    About the KZN Floods:

    The heaviest rainfall in at least six decades caused landslides, interrupted port operations, damaged roads and washed away houses. To date 341 people died as a result of the floods, more than 40,000 people have been affected, and the figures are rising.

    ABOUT ANTON SMIT:

    Widely revered for his overwhelming heads and monumental bronze sculptures, evoking themes of suffering, reconciliation, glory and sublimation. His works grace public and private collections locally and abroad, was featured at SCOPE Art Fair in New York 2017.

    His body of work comprises towering human figures, nudes, impressive heads, masks, hands, angels, floating and stretching figures, warriors as well as abstract works.

    He works with mostly steel, metal, stones, a unique iron and polymer cast mixture, and bronze.

    Anton likes to imbue his work with an illusion of movement or gesture, bodies curling up or limbs reaching out to the onlooker, a call to movement.
    Some observers have noted that this is why so many of his pieces, even the most abstract ones, manage to communicate powerfully and emotionally. His sculptures and art is possessed of a raw, earthy power that feels innately African.
    Anton’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Pretoria Art Museum, Rembrandt Foundation, Graff/Delaire Collection.
