Lorenzo Quinn was born in 1966 in Rome, Italy. He studied at the American Academy of Fine arts in New York, planning to be a Surrealist painter. At 21 years old, he decide to instead pursue sculpture.
His main inspirations are Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin.

Of Lorenzo Quinn's work, I most enjoy his piece "Force of Nature." Probably his most famous piece, I love the huge amount of energy and momentum he was able to create in a completely still sculpture. The orb seems to carry an immense amount of weight, which is reenforced by the pose of the figure and the rippling of its robes. I find some of his other work rather uninteresting, though it all has an incredible level of detail which I still appreciate
