Lorenzo Quinn's Magnificent Sculpture 'Give and Take'
‘I make art for myself and for people who wish to come along for a ride through my dreams. How we live our own lives is of the utmost importance, and most of my work has to do with values and emotions.’
Born in Rome in 1966, is the son of the Mexican American actor Anthony Quinn. Quinn was raised in both the United States and Italy and presently lives in Barcelona, Spain. It was in Rome where he discovered his love for art and started out as a painter in 1982, training at the American Academy of Fine Arts in New York.
Lorenzo's work is included in many impressive private collections throughout the world, which has led 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 on-going 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 has been commissioned by Fundatur and donated to the city of Mallorca, was unveiled opposite the Museum of Modern Art in Palma de Mallorca.
