LONDON, LONDON

Hello everyone,

Hope the rain in London hasn’t stopped the Summer high spirits! Here I am having a great weekend with 3 concurrent shows in London:

- Marlow Art Guitars at the Muse Gallery

- From the Stars and Beyond at Uxbridge Library

- Summer Solstice Show at the WestBank Gallery and Westbourne Park Tube Station

I am not only very proud but also feel really that London has taken my art and expression, not only due to the number of shows this summer (with Movement Artworks Exhibition opening this coming Friday at the Muse Gallery, where my work Yin and Yang V2 will be displayed alongside amazing works by other great talents in the London art scene!).

 

hope you can enjoy any of this shows! Thanks London and everyone for their support, encouragement and vibes!

have a great weekend

 

Francesco

SUMMERTIME … and the livin’ is easy

Hello everyone,

Summer is really starting on a high note. Yesterday I went to the private view of the ArtBelow’s Summer Solstice Exhibition, where ‘L’eterno Movimento’ is being featured, visited Westbourne Park station, where a poster of the work has been allocated a very nice spot for thousands of commuters to enjoy.

Monday will see the opening of a one week show with Marlow Guitars and the West London Factory at the Muse Gallery on Portobello Road, which in July will also see a collective exhibition of Movement Artworks (and I will be joining both exhibitions!) and last but not least I will be reviving my From the Stars (and beyond) Exhibition at Uxbridge Library next week.

So starting with the pictures from last evening I hope you enjoy and invite everyone to come and see it live if you can!

 

Have a great summer

 

Francesco

A FAMILY AFFAIR

Good morning everyone,

I recently challenged myself to produce a work in partnership with another artist. And for this first collaboration I decided to look to an artist very close to home, actually could not be closer: Miami based visual artist Francesco Lo Castro (http://francescolocastro.com/), who happens to be my nephew.

It is a compliment and at the same a challenge for both of us to keep our styles and blend them to create something unique. With that in mind, ‘Entangled’ was born! Still developing stages but an amazing start for what promises to be a very exciting collaboration!

 

Enjoy the rest of your week

TUBE ART

Hello everyone,

Summer promises a lot! Not only I have just confirmed one group exhibition at Muse Gallery (http://www.themuseat269.com/) in July, but also I have just some other piece of fantastic news: being selected to feature in an amazing exhibition and event that will take place from the 21st June.

My work ‘L’eterno Movimento’ (The eternal movement) is going to be featured in an exhibition at the prestigious West Bank Gallery (http://www.londonwestbank.com/) as part of Art Below celebration of the Summer Solstice. If that was not good enough, posters of the selected works will be featuring at Tube Stations close to the Gallery, so if you are around Notting Hill area, specially Westbourne Park tube station you might come across a familiar image:

Enjoy your week

DOUBLE CHECK: FOGLIE E PIUME (LEAVES AND FEATHERS)

Hello everyone,

After a hard working week to finish my first chess set, I embarked on working on my second challenge for Purling London (http://www.purlinglondon.com/), this time taking inspiration from two previous works (‘Di lava e di fuoco’ & ‘Fiori e piume’) and combining them together. This way, the new set ‘FOGLIE E PIUME’ was born!

I decided to take the colours from works I have been know for, and departed from the classics BLACK vs WHITE chess set, giving an edge to this new set. Needless to say, it did present a big craftsmanship test, which I really enjoyed.

Hope you like the results!

 

Enjoy your Sunday

CHECKMATE!!!!!

Hello everyone,

 

very exciting bank holiday here, working in a frenzy to complete my first Chess Set design for Purling London (http://www.purlinglondon.com/index.php).

Inspired by one of my works ‘Forever Autumn’ I decided to bring the spirit of Autumn to the chess board, without loosing the classy feel that Purling London has printed in their amazing previous sets. I feel honoured to been ask to produce a set, and work will start on a second one very shortly!

Enjoy it, I certainly did!

Have a great day

 

Francesco

INSIDE THE FYSHBOL

Hello everyone,

Closing this amazing month of April, I found myself joining a great and visionary team (led by two amazing sisters) whose mission will certainly move the Art world. FYSHBOL (http://www.fyshbol.com/), an amazing ‘place’ where Art and Art Lovers can meet, sell, share and engage.

The first of a series of events was held a the Graffik Gallery at Portobello Road, Notting Hill, and felt being at the right place at the right time! An amazing evening of Music, Art and celebration. I am not only happy but very thankful to be part of this!

WELL DONE FYSHBOL!

MYSTERIOUS WAYS

Hello everyone,

 

have you ever faced yourself going through some old stuff and finding something that actually were on the way to become something quite good and you never finished, for some very mysterious reason?

Thinking of that I found myself looking at these three rather interesting works (one of them even included some experiment with a drinking beverage) that I ought to have finished, but have never got round to actually doing it.

Enjoy your week

DIGITAL REMIX

Hello everyone

 

Do you remember that favourite song, from your favourite album, by your favourite artist? Then one day you turn on the radio and listen an AWFUL digital remix and you think ‘OH DEAR, WHERE DID IT GO WRONG’?

 

Forget about that …. remember the day you heard an AMAZING digital remix of a song you love and you think: ‘WHAT HAVEN’T THEY THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?’.

Well, with that thought in mind I went and visited some of my work and using a new gadget and a nice software I managed to recreate some of my works and I am not only very please with the results but also think of adapting some of those concepts into my ‘real life’ work, too.

Hope you enjoy

 

Wishing you all a great Easter

 

Francesco
