Anthony Quinn artwork displays at London City Airport

05/12/2013

Paintings by Oscar-winning actor Anthony Quinn will showcase at London City Airport from this weekend.

The 14 pieces that have never been on sale in London before will be on display at London City Airport until March 2014. Pieces will retail from £1,550.
 
Mexican actor, Quinn grew up in Los Angeles and was well-known for his roles in Lawrence of Arabia and Zorba The Greek.  He won the Academy award for Best Supporting Actor in 1952, playing opposite Marlon Brando in Viva Zapata!, and again in 1956 for his eight minute appearance in Lust For Life, as well as performing on Broadway.
 
Behind the cameras, Quinn had a passion for art and won many competitions during his younger years, aside from a brief spell studying under Frank Lloyd Wright, he was largely self-taught. His influences included his Mexican ancestry and the time he spent in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, whether as a resident or for filming.
 
During the 1980s Quinn’s artwork was displayed in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Mexico City and can also be found in both public and private collections around the world.
