Artist Profile

Mark Kramer

Kramer’s figurative sculptures are unique in their use of bronze, a historically significant medium employed by sculptors since antiquity. His contemporary visual stories developed through this classical medium speak to Kramer’s strong artistic technique. Kramer’s deep understanding of the bronze casting process sets himself as an artist as well as his work distinctly apart from other contemporary sculptors. His well-established body of work includes bronze bas relief and figurative sculptures depicting a wide range of subject matter, most recently this includes Zodiac Astrology and Parisian Culture and Landmark Scenes.

In addition to private collections, Kramer has created large-scale commissioned public sculptures throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
