Chris Banfalvi studied Graphic Design at St Lawrence College and found that his creative passions were not totally fulfilled… until he transitioned into the world of metal arts and became a metal sculptor. From the first time he started working with metal, he loved the way it could be shaped into delicate yet rigid forms.
He has a love for bringing ideas to life with designers and creating public art with functionality. The demanding physical nature of the process makes each work of art personal. Each piece retains a part of him.
Chris founded Dark Genesis Corporation and his passion for breathing new life into found objects was realized. From his perspective, it’s all about connections: his connectivity with the material, with other designers, and with the public.
Created from the spontaneous integration of discarded technology with forged steel, he spawns a world full of elegant, steel-based “life-forms.”
Chris resides in Frankville, Ontario.
