This biography from the Archives of AskART:
One of the original followers of the Italian Manifesto of Futurism, Mario de Ferrante studied with Antonio Mancini in Italy before coming to the United States in 1922. The first years after his arrival, he did murals and serigraphs, becoming one of the first members of the Los Angeles Serigraphy Institute of Los Angeles. He established a studio in Glendale.

As a Futurist, he believed that artists should tear down all past traditions in painting and devote themselves to subjects of science and industry, the key to human liberation. In style, Futurists strove to achieve a strong sense of dynamism.
