The Artist

Francesco Clemente

Francesco Clemente is an Italian artist whose work spans the globe. His focus is oil painting, pastels, watercolours, and printmaking. He’s produced frescos, graphics and mosaics, and also worked in sculpture. Francesco Clemente is part of the contemporary art movement, and many of his pieces are fragmentary, nomadic, and non-linear. Francesco Clemente began his career in the 1970s when he studied architecture for a short time at the University of Rome, and then went on to exhibit his drawings across Europe. His travels around the world, particularly to India, Tibet, and New York, culturally influenced many of his pieces. Clemente has had his work featured in a large number of international group and solo art exhibitions, including at Tokyo’s Sezon Museum of Art, The Royal Academy in London, and New York’s Guggenheim Museum. In 1998, his work was shown in the movie “Great Expectations”.
