Antonino Sciortino is an Italian artist known for his elaborate metalwork as well as his spectacular career as a dancer and choreographer. A native of Palermo, Italy, Sciortino began practising moulding metal at his brother's blacksmith's workshop when he was no older than eight, and even though the following decades took him in a different direction – dancing – Sciortino returned to the furnace at a more mature age. Sciortino's simple yet sophisticated metal sculptures draw inspiration from his career as a dancer and combine the heavy, rigid material with free-slowing movement in a fascinating way.
