STATEMENT
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 balance the sophisticated modernity between familiar and foreign. Krivosheiw effectively expresses the song of movement and the poetry of emotion through the language of metal. Drawing inspiration from varied sources including industrial design, ancient Greek cultures , and modern design aesthetic, Krivosheiw is intrigued by the fundamental nature of metal's longevity and strength, as well as its inherent elegance.

BIOGRAPHY
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 through earlier studies including Greek mythology, archaeology, and social anthropology, undertaken in Crete, Greece.
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-form sculpture. Works fabricated under Barrett's tutelage included bronze and aluminum sculptures reaching heights of 18 feet, many of which now reside in private collections worldwide. Krivoshiew also fabricated numerous wall reliefs fabricated for the painter Tom Wesselmann, which are counted in the permanent collections of top-tier museums both internationally and abroad.
