Francesco Campese
Data and contact details

I was born in Avellino in 1986. The passion for painting was born right away also thanks to my mother who was able to motivate me. In 2005 I moved to Rome to follow the painting course held by Giuseppe Modica at the Academy of Fine Arts. During my studies, my interests focused more on the figurative aspect, going to investigate reality. In 2011, after the academy, I worked on a long series of works that, starting from urban scenarios, transcended reality and created mysterious architectural structures. In 2015, the first works on the interpretation of works by the great masters of the past were born (eg the last dinner of Leonardo, the Annunciation of Blessed Angelic or the studio of Antonello da Messina), emptied of all the elements I thought was superfluous including the human figure: architecture becomes subject. Today, after endless experiments, research has focused on the intrinsic aspect of painting; irrespective of the subject, my source of inspiration is the visible reality. Time, caducity of things, history buried under sediments of matter, are points of reflection that have always attracted interest. Much like this, it is my way of painting that goes to look for an image through color stratifications, and at the same time digging in them by tracing the underlying tracks. Today I live and work in Rome
