Painter-sculptor Salvatore Scarpitta was an artist with wide-ranging modernist expression that included wrapped canvases symbolizing death and survival and sculptures of cars and sleds as a metaphor for travel.  He was born in 1919 in Manhattan, and was raised in Los Angeles, where his Italian-born father, was commissioned to do the bas-relief sculptures on the Los Angeles Stock Exchange Building.  His mother was a part-time actress.

Scarpitta graduated from Hollywood (showing 500 of 4377 characters).
