Biography 
LORENZO QUINN b. 1966, Rome Lorenzo Quinn studied at the American Academy of Fine Arts in New York and subsequently in workshops and foundries across the United States and Europe. Starting out as a painter in 1982, he soon discovered that a dimension was missing from his work. Turning to sculpture because of a deep-rooted need to create, he found this medium allowed him to directly convey his innermost feelings to the viewer. Inspired by the great masters such as Michelangelo, Bernini, Carpaux and Rodin, Lorenzo's work is included in many impressive private collections throughout the world, which has lead to a prodigious amount of commissioned work. This includes being commissioned by the Vatican to sculpt the likeness of Saint Anthony in commemoration of the Eighth Centennial of the Saint's birth. Lorenzo's sculpture was blessed by the Holy Father in Saint Peter's Square before it was placed in the Basilica del Santo in Padua in 1995. He has also been commissioned by the United Nations to produce a stamp for their collection, as well as placing several monumental sculptures throughout the UK and Europe. His ongoing project, 'The Globe Of Life' which represents the hundred most important moments in history, looks set to be his most significant work to date, with five monumental bronze sculptures linking each continent. Other than having exhibited throughout the United States, Lorenzo has shown his work in South America, Europe and Asia. In April 2003, Lorenzo's monumental sculpture, 'Encounters', which was commissioned by Fundatur and donated to the city of Mallorca, was unveiled opposite the Museum of Modern Art in Palma de Mallorca. Each of Lorenzo's sculptures is born first in writing, hence the reason why the artist always displays his poems alongside each sculpture. He is inspired to sculpt by life's everyday experiences, as well as by poems and literature in general, but especially from observing life's energy. Savouring life to its fullest is very important to Lorenzo, allowing him to enjoy the many different aspects of existence. As a result, each of his works represents a period, an emotion, a symbol, reflecting the clear, true vision of the artist. Commenting on his work, Lorenzo says, It is the viewer that interests me, not the art critic...I make art for myself and the people who wish to come along for a ride through my dreams.
