“Life is a wonderful endless journey… if you know how to live it.”
For sculptor and former actor Quinn (born 1966 in Rome), sculpture is primarily an art of communication. He regards his art as a medium through which he aims to help people evolve further in tolerance, understanding and harmony. Due to his father Anthony Quinn’s career, Lorenzo Quinn had a childhood split between Italy and the US, and today he lives in Barcelona. Lorenzo Quinn studied at the American Academy of Fine Arts in New York, but at 21 he decided that his interest lay in sculpture, as he wrote poetry, illustrated short stories, and transformed these illustrations into sculptures, he was very well received by the New York art community. The sculpture of Saint Anthony, which the Vatican commissioned him to sculpt in 1994, was blessed by the pope and placed in the basilica. Quinn’s works are exhibited around the world, and his ongoing “Globe of Life” project consists of 100 bronze plaques, each one featuring a relief representing an important moment in history.
