MI AMO DA SOLA , the video

After a couple of months since my last post , here I am again….

I would like to share with you  the new video  : MI AMO DA SOLA.

Quite a labour of love, taking over a month to complete , mainly drawn in pencil with the add of ink, pastel and gold leaf.

The sound track  chosen for the video is  : HEY NOW by the amazing LODON GRAMMAR.

Enjoy ….

MEET THE ARTIST 2nd EVENT …

Once again it was lovely meeting my fans at the Uxbridge library yesterday 10th October 2015.

This time I was drawing live on a new piece called MI AMO DA SOLA   

(I love alone) mainly a pencil and charcoal drawing but with a view to add colour….

I was delighted to chat and inspire the public who came to see me, loved chatting with talented children and their parents…. I was surprised by the artistic  focus and knowledge about drawing and shading techniques of an 8 years old boy who came with his mother to see me drawing…

I would like to  thank the public who attended my event , people and friends who helped to make it happen….

Thanks to Zoe, the library staff, Anita, Susan, Keith, Tim, and in particular Darrin Reeves whom in both occasions photographically recorded the MEET THE ARTIST event !

Thank you all 

Francesco. 

    
    
 

   
    
    
   

MEET THE ARTIST …. EVENT

WOW…..

What an incredible buzz yesterday afternoon at the Uxbridge Library….

To start with, I admit that I was a bit nervous about thinking of standing in front of my easel, trying to look relaxed and carry on drawing…

…knowing that a crowd of spectators were going to look at every move that I was going to make in a very public place like the  beautiful Library in Uxbridge, Greater London !

Well, I couldn’t ask for a better  outcome and experience!

The Library itself has a fantastic atrium exhibition space, I have exhibited there numerous times in the past but to draw live is a different story altogether !

To my amazement, as soon as I started drawing, I was of course in my element…. All set up : The Kurt Cobain Art Guitar that I proudly designed a while ago for Marlow Guitars was beautifully displayed on a table, next to it , an album of  mainly original drawings and signed prints and signed postcards….

There I was , drawing away while I could hear people footsteps behind me, then I knew the public was gathering in !

2 hours of pure : live drawing, interaction with people who had googled my name prior to the event to find out more about my art practice and stuff, loyal Fans who religiously follows me on social media , friends and ex colleagues who traveled for at least 2 hours through the London traffic just to be there to see and support me….

I would like to thank them all by mentioning their first names, they would recognise themselves….

Zoe, Keith, Darrin, Mikala, Malcolm, Helen and Roger, Muriel, the Uxbridge Library staff and of course the public that attended and interacted with me at the event…

Thank you !

Enjoy the photos taken by  filmmaker and friend Darrin Reeves….

See you all again next Saturday 10th October 2015 at Uxbridge library from 2 to 4 pm for the second session of MEET THE ARTIST !

Francesco.

COSMIC  SOUL

I am so pleased to announce that a  signed print on canvas of the Artwork COSMIC SOUL, has been sold to an Italian art enthusiast.

It’s going to be a wedding present for a young couple….

This drawing depicts two powerful elements : Air & Water, Sky & Sea….and if we turn the piece upside down, we can amazingly see a totally different picture…

R ITRATTI  SCRITTI ~ WRITTEN PORTRAITS

To celebrate this series of works, here is a small video .

The portraits were created mainly using black biro pen , quite a challenge if you think that mistakes are not aloud with this media… Soft pastels and occasionally pencil are part of the drawings too.

The video features portraits of  :  JIM MORRISON, LYVE TAYLOR, MALIFICENT , SOFIA LOREN, CARLA BRUNI, GIUSI ROMANIA, CINZIA IACOBELLO, AGATA LO CURTO, NATALIE SHAW and myself.

The music I have chosen is by INTERPOL, Pace is the trick, I am particularly attached to this song , simply because it reminds me of a period in my life filled  up to the top with intense emotions and fleeting Love….

Enjoy…

Francesco ❤️
