Boris Kramer


Steel and copper.


Boris Kramer began working with metals at a young age given that his father was a professional blacksmith. Later, in 1995, Kramer completed a Fine Arts degree at McMaster University and thereafter committed himself to reconciling the skills which he learned home as well as in school into his sculpted works.
‘‘I am a sculptor. I heat and forge metal by hand until it conveys the expression and energy of a human form. When the metal is hot, it becomes very malleable which is why I chose this particular medium. Working with metals allows me to explore the forces which jointly bring together and separate people. Having personally experienced both great joy and tragedy, I want my work to resonate not only in the souls of viewers but also in their hearts’’.
Among his influences, Kramer cites rayonism and impressionsm as being particularly important for his work. Between classical inspiration, an academic education, and a trade passed down by his father Boris has successfully developed a unique vision and style which is sure to enchant the imagination.


Born in Hamilton in 1969.
