Robert Bodem

Robert Bodem is a graduate cum laude in Sculpture from Boston University (1995), where he also received his MA in 1998. In that same year Robert was recipient of the prestigious Albert S. and Ester B. Kahn Award for his talent in figurative sculpture. During his undergraduate studies, he worked as an assistant to the sculptor, Dimitri Hadzi. He later spent a year as a sculpture student at The Florence Academy of Art (1995-96), to return in 1998 to found and direct the Academy’s Sculpture Program. Robert is originator of the concept, “Drawing in Space,” his unique approach to sculpture, and author of the manual by the same name that he shares with his students in the program. Robert exhibits primarily in The U.S. and select shows in Europe.
