Among other commissions, for the people of Birmingham, Quinn created the sculpture Tree of Life representing those that had perished in the Birmingham air raids in World War II.

    More Details Hide Details Many of the sculptures in Evolution featured the symbol that has become synonymous with Quinn: the human hand. ‘I wanted to sculpt what is considered the hardest and most technically challenging part of the human body’, he explains. ‘The hand holds so much power – the power to love, to hate, to create, to destroy. I have injected a lifetime of experience into Evolution; it is about my past, present and future.’

  • 2003

    Quinn has also created the monumental sculpture Encounters, commissioned by Fundatur and donated to the city of Mallorca in 2003.

  • TWENTIES
  • 1994
    Age 27
    Shortly after, in 1994, Quinn was commissioned by the Vatican to create a sculpture of Saint Anthony.
    More Details Hide Details The sculpture was blessed by Pope John Paul II in Saint Peter's square, and later placed in the Basilica del Santo in Padua, Italy, commemorating the eighth centennial of the saint's death. On March 5, 2002, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation announced a competition, in which the jury would select a design for a memorial that would pay respect to all those died in the World Trade Center attack. Quinn and a team entered with the design 'Angels of the World'. Quinn's ongoing project, 'The Globe of Life' which represents the hundred most important moments in history, features five monumental bronze sculptures linking each continent. It is a monumental bronze sculpture, in the form of a Globe in diameter and weighing two very large hands outstretched towards the heavens above of three and one half meters have been placed on its top. One hundred bronze plaques cover its entire surface. Each one represents in relief an important moment in history, whether biological, cultural or technological, such as the Big Bang, the augmentation of the brain mass, the control of fire, the discovery of the wheel, the printing press, religion, and the microchip.
  • 1991
    Age 24
    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 in the film Dalí, alongside English actress Sarah Douglas portraying his wife Gala.
    More Details Hide Details 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 solely to art. Quinn's sculpture begins in writing, either his own poetry or other literature. The image is then drafted on paper, then a smaller model is created. By the age of 21 he gained the respect of the New York art community when he was commissioned to make an art work for the United Nations of which a stamp was later made. Quinn was later selected to head the Absolut Vodka ad campaign for which only top international artists are chosen.
