Sculptor, Ed Smith, in his Studio
Ed Smith's work is primarily involved with the mythic and heroic aspects of the Artist and man. His work displays a passion, vitality and commitment to the Mythology of Art. Throughout his career, Ed Smith has been known for his portrayal of the “heroic ideal”. His inspiration is drawn from the Classical Period of Greece, the Golden Age; a time period which drew its heroes and code of conduct, in part, from the writings of Homer.
