Designer and artisan metalworker Kevin Oyen (°1986) is described as a master smitty.
The work of Kevin, the sculptor who works with steel, is impressive and robust. His creations often include abstract shapes and organic lines that contrast with the hard material he uses. Kevin's ability to manipulate steel and give it a sense of movement and elegance is admirable.
Most of his work is based on experimenting with reflection, transparancy, balance, smoothness and patinating.
His sculptures can be seen in both indoor and outdoor spaces, where they form a striking element. By turning steel into works of art that convey emotion and imagination, Kevin has left a unique mark on the world of sculpture.
His work is often praised for the way it beautifully brings together roughness and refinement.
Beyond traditional crafts, he creates innovative organic metal structures and objects from the unexpected.
