Lorenzo Quinn

Lorenzo Quinn (Rome, 1966) is the son of the Mexican American actor Anthony Quinn and Iolanda Quinn. He started out as a painter in 1982, training at the American Academy of Fine Arts in New York. Quinn was attracted to acting where he interpreted roles such as Antonio Stradivari as the young violin maker with his father Anthony Quinn playing the elder. Quinn, having started painting, had always been an admirer of the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí and in 1991 he interpreted the Spanish artist on the big screen, alongside English actress Sarah Douglas portraying his wife Gala. Quinn achieved the best new actor award at the Biarritz Film Festival. However, it was by working in this role that Quinn decided his own career needed a change of direction and so he phased out acting to dedicate himself mainly to visual arts. Since then, his artistic path has developed mainly in figurative sculpture, with large works of positive and emotional impact, often positioned in public sites.

"È estremamente importante che esista un giusto equilibrio in tutti gli aspetti della vita. La natura ha tentato di insegnarcelo da sempre. Tutti gli opposti convergono agli estremi. Non si può godere appieno nel ricevere se non si è mai dato, semplicemente perché non si sa apprezzare quanto ricevuto visto che solo si può apprezzare ciò che è difficile da ottenere."

"It is imperative that there be an equilibrium with everything in life. Nature has been trying to teach us that lesson throughout time. All opposites meet in their extremes. You cannot take full pleasure in receiving if you have never given, simply because you would not recognize the gift you have received since you value what is difficult to obtain."
