Originally trained in Architecture, Boback discovered his creative calling in the world of sculpture. His interest in natural material and his utilization of space as a material in his work can be seen in his metal sculptures and Tar paintings.
Guided by his personal experience he creates works of art which express his internal grappling with memory and place. His compositions express a powerful geometric language, which incorporates/utilizes both the void and the material. There is an inherent yearning for a sense of belonging and connection that is evident in his public sculptures in Europe and the United States.
