Luigi Francischello was born in Zurich, (CH) in 1964, he has lived in Switzerland, Australia and Italy. His sense of design, derives from the experience of a keen observation of ancient art and his experiments with colour result in a highly individual style. His subjects range from contaminated figures and metaphysical backgrounds marked with aggressive strength in a fortuitous order. The full range of his subject flash out into a hieratic atmosphere.My work is based on the form and on the colour, where the gesture, the thought and the falsehood meet in a favourable way. We can interpret living in various formulas: life as a ludic activity, life as research, life as provocation, life like social commitment, life as illusion, life as verity morally and ethically truthful, life as emotional share, lives as sexual correlation, life like a commitment business. So is living such is art: in this way painting and thought becomes experience
