ITALIAN, B. 1981
Lorenzo Vignoli was born in 1981 in the medieval Tuscan town of Lucca, Tuscany, exposed to art from an early age by parents who nurtured his creative curiosity.
He studied Painting at Central Saint Martin's School of Art in London and Figure Drawing and Urban Landscape at the Art Institute of Chicago before embarking on years of formative travels, gathering creative inspirations at artist residences in far flung places like Rwanda, Israel, Bosnia, Ireland and Brazil.
Returning to his home town of Carrara, Italy, he enrolled in the Accademia di Belle Arti di Carrara and spent several years working as resident sculptor in the iconic marble emporiums in and around Carrara and Pietrasanta area.
Lorenzo Vignoli's skill of stonemasonry references the classical sense of beauty and aesthetic style of two sculptors in particular, Michelangelo and Rodin.
His captivating sculptures are evocative of classical figurative forms as much as they are influenced by modernist abstract movements.
Vignoli’s sculptures have been exhibited throughout Italy and in several public and commissioned projects in California, Australia, China, Brazil, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Lettonia, Rwanda and Bosnia.
