Artist Biography

"My mission is to  breath new life into unusable Ferrari car parts and redefine the relationship between the natural and mechanical worlds through my art."


James Ferrari expresses himself through his passion for Ferrari cars and metal working.

He was born in Bronxville, NY in 1969 and grew up splitting his time between New York and 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.
