Lorenzo Quinn is regarded as one of the world’s leading contemporary sculptors. His work is primarily concerned with portraying authentic emotions and universal values in physical, three-dimensional form. His themes of love, relationships, and emotional trauma can be explored and experienced by every single member of his audience, made all the more accessible by his bold depictions of humanity in interaction with itself.


Son of actor Anthony Quinn, Lorenzo cites his father as one of his primary influences both in terms of living in the limelight of the film world and his father’s early work in painting and architecture. Due to his father’s career, Quinn split his childhood across Italy and the United States, before he began to study at the American Academy of Fine Arts in New York. It was around this time that Quinn created what he now recognises to be his first piece of artwork: Adam & Eve, a sculptural interpretation of Michelangelo’s Adam, which, through the creative process, revealed a torso of Eve within.

With the success of his father, Quinn dabbled in the acting world, starring alongside Anthony Quinn in Stradivari (1989), before settling on sculpture as his true passion. Quinn found that it was through the medium of sculpture that he could create genuine works of art. His focus remained keenly on the human figure, implementing the classical rule of the golden ratio to guide his hand, and using his medium to express the values of community, love, and support that are intrinsic to humanity.
