I have a simple arrow like this:

enter image description here

I want to make it curved about the Z axis like this:

enter image description here

In this image it is a texture applied with transparent background to a plane. But I want to make it a 3D model and apply a special material.

I tried adding a curve modifier and ended up with this:

What is the best method to use?

    $\begingroup$ Using the curve is ok. But you have to subdivide your mesh (mainly transversally to the curve) in order to allow it to follow the curve. $\endgroup$
