“I am a sculptor. I heat and hand forge metal until it gives form to expressions of human energy as it engages and relates. When heated, metal is extremely forgiving, that’s why I choose it as a medium. Through it, I explore the forces that draw us together and that separate us from ourselves and each other. Having experienced both great tragedy and joy in my own life, I want my art to sustain relevant and meaningful encounters”.

Boris Kramer was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1969. Through his father, he learned blacksmithing techniques by osmosis; at home, art and metal were part of daily life. In 1995, when he completed a degree in Fine Arts at McMaster University, he committed his artistic future to metal and joined his father at the forge. . .
