Tony Smith

Once in a rare while you come across a public sculpture that so transforms the space its in that it takes your breath away, and you return again and again to see if surprise and delight vanish with familiarity. Tony Smith was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. A sculptor, painter and architect who apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright, he reached international fame in the sixties and seventies as a sculptor

Tony Smith mixed art and math; for him, it was the most natural thing in the world. He spent hours by himself, making buildings and miniature cities from small medicine boxes. He put the boxes—cubes and other polyhedra—together in different ways for his creations.

i like the way he put math and art together and created an abstract sculptures.
