Mark di Suvero (born as Marco Polo di Suvero) is an American abstract expressionist sculptor born in Shanghai, Chinamarker in 1933 to Italian expatriates. He came to San Francisco, Californiamarker in 1941 with his father. From 1953 to 1957, he attended the University of California, Berkeleymarker to study fine arts and where he ultimately earned a degree in Philosophy. He later moved to New York Citymarker where he was surrounded by an explosion of Abstract Expressionism. While working in construction, he was critically injured in a freight elevator accident and focused all his attention on sculpture.

While in rehabilitation, he learned to work with an arc welder. His early works were large outdoor pieces that incorporated railroad ties, tires, scrap metal and structural steel. This exploration has transformed over time into a focus on I-beams and heavy gauge metal. Many of the pieces contain sections that are allowed to swing and rotate giving the overall forms a considerable degree of motion. He prides himself on his hands-on approach to the fabrication and installation of his work.

Di Suvero was a founding member of the Park Place Gallery[280818] and ConStruct, both artist-owned galleries, the former was the first SoHomarker Contemporary art gallery and the latter promoted and organized large-scale sculpture exhibitions throughout the United States. Other founding members include John Raymond Henry, Kenneth Snelson, Lyman Kipp and Charles Ginnever.

His distinctive, large bold pieces can be found all over the world. He continues to be the subject of multiple exhibitions and his commitment to emerging artists is undeniable through the Athena Foundation and the Socrates Sculpture Parkmarker. Di Suvero has received the Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award from the International Sculpture Center and, in 2005, the 11th Annual Heinz Award in the Arts and Humanities for his commitment to aspiring artists.

Di Suvero currently lives in New York Citymarker with his wife and daughter. He has three working studios, one in Long Island City, a former brickyard on the edge of the East River in Long Island and an open air fabrication facility in Petaluma California, close to the historic downtown area, on the Petaluma River. His partially assembled sculptures can be seen from far and wide. The third studio is on a river barge in Chalon-sur-Saone, France.
