Alexander's Sculptures

FFJ 0417 custom lead2

April 2017 - West Palm Beach, Florida-based artist Alexander Krivosheiw combines traditional hand-fabricated craftsmanship with innovative concepts created in bronze and aluminum. His ­welded creations are formed in a laborious, classic technique, which he describes as being “like old-school blacksmithing. But instead of heating the metal, I work with it cold and hammer it out.”

It all begins with a sketch. Krivosheiw traces his designs onto sheets of metal, then bends and contorts the shapes by hand. After welding various sections together, he spends hours grinding the piece until it has a smooth and flawless finish. “Metal allows me to create a language that will exist far beyond my lifetime,” Krivosheiw says. A “poetry of emotion” but through the language of metal.
