Born in 1952, Naples, Francesco is one of the most highly regarded painters in the world. He was central to the resurgence of painting in the 1980s. He has frequently worked in India, inspired by the country’s contemplative traditions. Part figurative and part abstract, his paintings and drawings explore the mysteries of human life. His subjects are drawn from myth, religion, and popular culture and reflect Mediterranean, Indian and American influences. In New York he has worked with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg among others. Francesco’s work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions in the world’s leading galleries including the Pompidou, the Guggenheim in New York and the Sezon Museum in Tokyo. He lives and works in New York.
