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 Greek mythology and marble sculpting 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 the Solitaire building, the largest site in the Seventh District-Taichung Center.
One of Krivosheiw‘s greatest honors was teaching disadvantaged children how to create sculptures, one of which was then auctioned off, helping the kids raise several thousand dollars for their very own charity.
