Occupying the limitless space between abstraction and
representation, Alexander Krivosheiw 's hand-welded and
shaped sculptures are created with the laborious, traditional
technique of metal fabrication, yet are balanced by a sophisticated
modernity. 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.
- Born in New York in 1976, Alexander Krivosheiw holds a B.A. in
Sculpture, graduating with Honors from the School of Visual Arts in
New York City. His interest in art began at the age of 15, heavily
influenced by his studies of marble sculpting and Greek mythology
undertaken in Greece, off the Island of Crete.
- 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 metal sculpture.
- Krivosheiw has had many private commissions by such leaders as
President Bach of the International Olympic Committee. Krivosheiw
was commissioned to sculpt the "President's Trophy,"
which is the most prestigious award given to highly respected and
admired global icons, from Presidents and Heads of State, to Royals
and the most decorated Olympic athletes of all time.
- Real Estate commissions by Pao Huei, a Taiwanese developer, in
which Krivosheiw sculpted a monumental 25 foot mirror polished
bronze sculpture for Solitaire on the Park, the largest site in the
Seventh District-Taichung Center.
- One of Krivosheiw's greatest honors was helping
disadvantaged children express emotion by the abstraction of
symbols in the form of sculpture. One sculpture conceptualized by the
children was fabricated by Alexander and sold at auction.
