About Mark Birksted

Mark Birksted

(b.1985, Toronto, ON) Birksted creates hand-bent metal sculptures that are a direct response to his frustrations with the digital world. The metal is bent at room temperature, using an anvil. His philosophy is that "no bend can be undone – there is no ‘undo’ key". Trained as a graphic designer, Birksted has apprenticed with Shayne Dark, one of Canada's most established sculptors.
