Jeff de Boer is a Calgary-based multi-media artist with an international reputation for producing some of the world’s most original and well-crafted works of art. With an emphasis on metal, he is best known for such bodies of work as suits of armour for cats and mice, armour ties and sword-handled briefcases, rocket lamps and pop culture ray guns, and for exquisite high art, abstract works called exoforms.
Jeff has successfully established two companies: The Little Giant Rocket Company Ltd., which is the production house for his art and sculpture, as well as Armét, a jewellery manufacturing and marketing company. Over the past fifteen years he has also founded LEXM, The League of Extraordinary Makers, a guild-like organization made up of artists and industries that share resources and knowledge.
