Biography: Joe Quillan was only 25 years old when asked to exhibit his sculptures at the Vorpal gallery in San Francisco in 1982. He became the youngest artist to exhibit sculptures of marine life at an internationally recognized gallery.
At 26, he won the prestigious Mystic International Award of Excellence from the Mystic Gallery in Connecticut, and shortly thereafter, he exhibited in Maui, Hawaii.
At 27, he sculpted the symbol of the Pacific Peace Awards for Sydney, Australia – a dolphin swimming with an olive branch that circled the earth. He has since had commissions from many ocean and environmental groups raising awareness of the marine environment’s fragile balance.
