Bruce Niemi


Bruce Niemi

Bruce Niemi is a second-generation sculptor who studied under his father, Frank J. Niemi (an ornamental iron artist and self-taught sculptor). Niemi learned how to weld at his father's studio in 1968. His father was a major influence in the style and craftsmanship that goes into a Niemi sculpture.

In 1974, Niemi entered Northern Illinois University and graduated in 1981 with a B.F.A. in Sculpture. He's been welding and creating sculptures for 47 years; full-time for 29 years.

To date, Bruce has over 54 permanent public sculptures across the United States and Europe.
