Born in Militello in Val Di Catania, Sicily, Francesco Jacobello grew up surrounded by art and artistic expressions. These external circumstances have helped shape his art practice by simultaneously allowing for his own personal and artistic language to develop. A core inspiration behind his works comes from the personal connection with his environment, and especially the wish to immortalize expressions and feelings that draw oneself to people, places and situations.
Jacobello categorizes his art within a new generation of artists who are influenced by the Italian Classics, but remain connected with the urban feel of contemporary practices in the present art world.
To provide a deeper perspective of his art, he shares one of his personal testimonies: ‘Every artist has an unspoken desire to construct a bound between his creations and the public. It is not about fame or recognition, but about telling your story in such a way that is their story too. And in the case of expressing this through the visual arts, this mammoth task becomes a part of one?s daily routine, even though it is something you do not glimpse as your usual daily concern in life.’
Jacobello has exhibited in various venues in the UK and Europe (lately joining artist such as Carne Griffiths and Pure Evil for Marlow Art Guitars) and his works are part of public and private collections around the world including Italy, Australia, England, France, Switzerland, USA (California, New York and Florida), Canada, Germany and Brazil.
