A sculptor of minimalist outdoor pieces, many of them linear with great volume and of dark, smooth metal, Tony Smith was from South Orange, New Jersey. He first trained as an architect and in 1939 began working for Frank Lloyd Wright. He also did some painting as a part-time student at the Art Students League but did not begin sculpting until 1956 when he was age 44. His first exhibitions were in 1964.

Smith was also a teacher in various institutions including New York University, Cooper Union, Pratt Institute, Bennington College and Hunter College.
