A GIANT MEDUSA IN CROYDON

Hello everyone!!!!

After cold, sweat, paint and a lot of work MEDUSA is finally here!!!

This is an amazing collaboration with Rise Gallery Croydon (http://rise-gallery.co.uk/) with the support of the Council to bring more art to the walls and streets of London.

A wonderful spot, just opposite to the famous Fairfield Halls and next to the imposing Nestlé building!

Hope you can all enjoy it!

COMING SOON …… IN A ‘WNDOW’ NEAR YOU

Hello everyone,

2015 brings a lot of interesting news, the first big one is a collaboration with Rise Gallery’s amazing initiative to bring colour and art to the streets of … CROYDON!

It will be my first ever big scale work in the ‘open’ in te UK. So I chose to bring ‘Medusa’ to the ‘big screen’.

Keep your eyes open, you never know what you going to face when walking near the imposing Nestlé building in Croydon.

Happy 2015 to you all

Francesco

Great surprise from Portugal

Hello everyone

Doing the usual searching myself on youtube (as some artist do) I found this really amazing video, made by a fan in Portugal.

MUITO OBRIGADO

Are you experienced?

Hello everyone,

it’s been months since my last guitar design for Marlow Guitars. This next one was going to be a challenge, to depict the God of Guitar, the greatest of them all!
VODOO CHILD was born influenced by all the amazing colours of Hendrix’s music and virtuosity!

I hope I paid a respectful homage to this great man!

Hope you like it

Come back

Hello everyone,

now that Summer is coming to an end here in London, is time to pick up from where I left before the amazing holidays. ‘Awakening’ , Black and Red biro combined. Very challenging, but very rewarding!

Enjoy

SICILIA BEDDA

Hello everyone,

What an amazing 3 weeks! As said in my last post, I was taking some time to re-energize and get inspired. And what better place than my homeland, the wonderful Sicily! The amazing palaces, the lavish decorations, the colourful and powerful designs, the exquisite ceramic from Caltagirone, the amazing hills and sights. And crowing all that, the great Mount Etna and the power of Nature. All parts of myself that will stay with me as long as I live!
It was not only very emotional seeing old friends, family (the old and the new members) but also getting to see the new generation of Sicilian artists that I am sure will make a huge impact in years to come!
But it was also a trip through my Artistic development, looking at old works, different styles, my ceramic works, my many faces and perspectives! Here are some shots that I want to share with you, which I hope you will like! Now I am fired up to start working on my new projects and laying the path to a great second half of 2014!

Enjoy it

Francesco

LA FENICE

Hello everyone,

Hope you are enjoying your week. It’s been quite a while since my last post and this is will be probably my last post for July: after a busy 5 weeks, as the mythological Phoenix , I am going to take some time to recreate and recharge myself. Visiting roots, family, being on my own but surrounded by those who I love and love me! Nothing better after such a successful start for 2014!! But that took a lot of effort, energy, concentration and, why not, passion!

That does not mean I will not work! WORK IS NON-STOP ON THESE SHORES!!! But it means it is time to start new projects and carry on the old ones with renewed energy.

First, I started working on a new biro (black and red) work entitled ‘AWAKENING’ which is not only taking longer than usual, but I AM taking every step very carefully, a challenge when your brain has thousands of plans for the ‘next stage’. Then I am embarking on a new project: COLLABORATIONS. This is a new series of drawings which will witness one of the most challenging steps in any artist’s career: to collaborate with another artist. The first was the very successful partnership with my nephew Francesco Lo Castro, and I have now started working on the second. Names and shapes will come and I will make sure to keep you all posted!

 

Enjoy your holidays, I will certainly enjoy mine!

 

Thanks everyone for the support and amazing energy! Time to recharge

 

Francesco
