USA / Born New York 1979
Joining traditional hand-fabricated craftsmanship with innovative, iconoclastic concepts realized in bronze and aluminum, Krivosheiw creates dynamic, curvilinear monumental sculptures and functional forms.
Occupying the liminal and limitless space between abstraction and representation, Alexander’s hand-welded, polished, and shaped creations are created in the laborious, old school technique of metal fabrication, yet they balance the sophisticated modernity between the familiar and the foreign. Krivosheiw effectively expresses the song of movement and the poetry of emotion through the language of metal. Drawing inspiration from varied sources including ancient Greek cultures and modern design aesthetics, Krivosheiw is intrigued by the fundamental nature of metal's longevity, strength, and inherent elegance.
Alexander Krivosheiw was born in New York in 1976. He holds a B.A. with Honors in sculpture from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His interest in art was informed by his studies of Greek mythology, marble sculpting apprenticeships undertaken in Crete, Greece at the age of 15. While enrolled at the School of Visual Arts, Krivosheiw embarked upon an intensive seven-year apprenticeship with sculptor Kevin Barrett, where he developed and honed his welding and fabrication skills for large metal-form sculpture.
