One of his cherished childhood reminiscences saw him dashing to the workshop when his farm chores were complete to make functional sailboats to use on the back garden pond. His adoration of design appeared early on, and at nineteen he set off for the University of Nigeria where his affinity for sculpture was born.
Poverty allowed Victor Klassen to expand his style and design capabilities, and forced him to combine the whimsical with the sensible. However, soon he had observed a place for his exceptional furniture.
This artistic project has since become a fusion of the artists newfound ideas and the material he worked with. Many carpenters saw their medium into straight beams this being the easiest way in which to work with equipment but Victor was keenly developing a completely different and radical approach.
Victor still draws creativity from the styles of the natural world, and often plays with fresh new techniques. He works as the artistic guru behind The Victor Klassen Collection, as well as being directly included in commissions and various custom-made contracts.
