Bruce Niemi | Artist of the Week

Creating sculpture since the age of 12, Bruce A. Niemi is a second-generation, full-time contemporary sculptor based in Kenosha, Wisconsin whose works are made by manipulating heavy metal to create graceful fluid forms that are meant to be positive and uplifting.

Inspired by the beauty of nature while exploring shapes that are elegant and as simple as a blade of grass or as powerful as waves crashing along the seashore, his work evokes an ethereal quality that draws you inward and upward.   Dance being one of his greatest joys and passions, he studies the human form and uses it in an unconventional abstract manner not always evident that it is based on the human form. Working primarily in stainless steel and bronze he occasionally will incorporate other materials such as stone and steel into his one-of-a-kind sculptures. Having been blessed with 55 public sculptures and numerous corporate as well as residential placements in the U.S and Ireland, Bruce continues to strive for excellence in the pursuit of living his dream.

Bruce was recently featured in the April edition of ArtScene Magazine in an article titled "Let Your Imagination Soar: A Conversation with Sculptor Bruce Niemi.
