Energetic figures, posed at the brink of balance, animate the mythological world of sculptor Boban. Athletes and angels, heroes and artists, musicians with violins or exotic horns are captured in metal at the most dynamic moment of their creative act. “I want to sculpt the highest moment – the moment when my figures reach to the sky like the spires of a cathedral. I want to express that electric impulse. I want my sculptures to be fused with the sparks of life, poised at the last moment of balance. My figures are leaders, winners in the human experience.”
For Boban, the spoon has taken on a spiritual dimension, representing the nourishment of the human soul in its dynamic path towards personal fulfillment, power, creativity, andsuccess. Boban creates powerful maquettes by fusing, bending and shaping spoon elements in the welding process. With his fiery welding torch, the artist maneuvers the flow of molten energy into mythological metal human shapes, infusing warmth and dimension into cold metal.
