Born in Andretta, Italy, Luigi Badia enjoyed Art at an early age. He studied the Classics and the Italian Renaissance. Captivated by the human form, the works of Michelangelo quickly became a personal favorite and inspiration. He began his education and developed his talent as an apprentice to a number of fine Artists, Sculptors and Medalists. Luigi collaborated with Felix W. de Weldon, Sculptor of the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington D.C. His formal education includes a BS degree from CUNY and a MFA degree from Pratt Institute. Luigi is also an elected member of the prestigious National Sculpture Society. During his career, he has created a variety of works for exhibiting, along with an extensive list of commissions. Many of these pieces, ranging from sculptures, bas reliefs and medallic works can be seen internationally, including Italy, France, Spain, England, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Israel, China and throughout the United States including Hawaii. These works are comprised of portrait busts, full figures, and reliefs of the following prominent individuals: George Bush, Danny Aiello, David Ben Gurion, Willie Nelson, Babe Ruth, Theodore Roosevelt, Walter Byers, Calvin Albert, King Kamehameha, Oscar Robertson, Miss Universe Lupita Jones, Eddie Robinson, Abraham Lincoln, Christopher Columbus, Benjamin Franklin, Martin Luther King Jr., Mao Zedong and Queen Elizabeth II.
