“Kevin Sweeney’s sculptures are absolutely mind bending” – Uri Geller

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. I’m thrilled to own one of his artworks. I highly recommend his ability to adapt to his clients needs. 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.
