The sculpture of Igor Kitzberger is dynamic and alive in its movement.
During his studies in Italy, Kitzberger became inspired by violin player Niccolo Paganini, whom he sculpted in bronze. Welded in a very expressive subtle way in bronze, this became Igor’s most famous sculpture.
His work, unlike that of other sculptors that work with metal, is not casted but welded. This lends each piece a distinct quality, each piece is an original, no two identical pieces ever leave his atelier.
Kitzberger works mostly with the human figure. His sculptures of dancers, jugglers, Paganini, harlequins, are often in exalted positions.
His welding technique is characterized by the achievement of the maximum possible expression of dynamics.
