Kevin Sweeney’s sculptures are absolutely mind bending, his skill and talent are reflected in his art in an infinite way. There is a poetic fluidity to his work.

His amazing sculptures could look great in any place, whether in a home, an office or a corporate installation. I predict that Kevin and his artwork will become very big in the near future.
