Lorenzo Quinn studied at the American Academy of Fine Arts in New York and subsequently in workshops and foundries across the United States and Europe. Starting out as a painter in 1982, Lorenzo Quinn soon discovered that a dimension was missing from his works and that Lorenzo Quinn could not offer anything that had not already been offered by other artists before him.
Turning to sculpture because of a deep-rooted need to create, Lorenzo Quinn found this medium allowed him to convey his innermost feelings to the viewer; it is, in fact, this direct communication which Lorenzo constantly seeks. Lorenzo Quinn says, “It is the viewer that interests me not the art critic...I make art for myself and the people who wish to come along for a ride through my dreams.” Lorenzo Quinn is inspired by the great masters such as Michelangelo, Bernini, Carpaux and Rodin, and Lorenzo Quinn frequently returns to Italy to gain inspiration and knowledge.
Photographer and graphic designer Laurent Seroussi combined the beauty of the human female form with fascinating, symmetrical, and leggy bug bodies in this project entitled Insectes. The fantasy creations incorporate sleek female figures blending with the bodies of insects in extremely realistic and well-photoshopped depictions. According to his bio, "Laurent Seroussi’s multifaceted imagery brings together his background in both graphic design and moving imagery. His immediate work stretches the imagination with playful visual tricks and postproduction wizardry."
