Artist Biography

"My mission is to give unusable Ferrari car parts  and second life through my art."


James Ferrari has a passion for Ferrari cars and metal working.

He was born in Bronxville, NY in 1969 and grew up in Southwest Florida.

His Italian roots started with his great, great, great, grandfather, Allesandro Ferrari ( 1845) who owned a farm in Parma, Italy. His great grandparents, Domenic and Angelina ( Moruzzi) moved to America in 1898.

Ferrari's passion to become a metal sculptor was ignited during his last semester at Florida State University while finishing his studio arts degree.  In 1993, the University purchased Ferrari's first steel sculpture titled, "Victory" as a public art piece for the Bobby E. Leach Center.
