About Arend Smith

I am a sculptor who focuses on creature design and monstrous, fanciful fine art displays. Although I do produce some fine art sculptures of real animals my true passion is creating monsters. I love monsters. I always have. Scary ones, nice ones, elegant and noble satyrs, ugly Krampuses and Perchten, dragons of all shapes and sizes, cute critters that turn scary with lots of teeth, ugly ones that are misunderstood and only use their enormous teeth for chewing celery and carrots… I love them all. I especially love creatures that blend into natural settings and give off the feeling they would be very at home in ancient forests and lonely mountain passes. I work in a wide range of materials and create everything from small collectible resin kits to one of a kind larger than life displays. I take commissions from private collectors as well as working with the film and game industries as a designer, creature suit and prosthetics maker.
