This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Sculptor John Raimondi is the oldest of four sons of first generation Italian immigrants. Intending to become a seascape painter, he attended the Portland School of Fine and Applied Arts in Maine. There he met teacher and sculptor, Norman Therrien who encouraged Raimondi to try sculpture. Next Raimondi attended the Massachusetts College of Art where he studied sculpture and worked on finding his own "form of language."

Raimondi's monumental sculptures are known for their lyrical qualities and use of color. The sculptor initially used Cor-Ten steel but has recently worked with both bronze and stainless steel for his sculptures. He uses a full range of color from red to turquoise to transparent gold.

Raimondi has sculptures in 30 states and several European countries. In 1987 he won a national competition and was awarded a multi-million dollar commission for the "Dance of the Cranes" for the Omaha Airport Authority in Nebraska. Other commissions include "Artorius" based on the King Arthur legend for London's Stockley Park and "Lupus" for the Lotus Corporation in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has a study in chalk of "Lupus" and a small-scale bronze of the sculpture in its collections.

Raimondi is currently working on a series called "Jazz" which includes figures for Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Chet Baker and Miles Davis.

The artist lives in New York City.
