About Mauro Di Francescantonio


Welcome to my online gallery and thanks to devote some of your time.
I was born in 1962 in Popoli,Italy
Self-taught, I began to paint very young participating in the first painting competition for young painters 'City of Popoli' Italy in 1973 and won first prize.
After studying art I work in watercolor and drawing landscapes and glimpses of my land, water reflections, the wet and the atmospheres are recurring themes in my works of that period.
In 1990 start the abstract, action painting, academicism outside traditional work through a journey of emotions, love the action, the creative moment, the energy formed on the canvas.
Mixed media, acrylic enamels and will always be present.
They are attracted by the projection of light in the context of the elements (air, earth, water, fire, and space) as opposed to the dark through the human psyche, expressing the colors the feelings, fears, joys and desires of the complexity of human.Art is love of life, communicate with you through my work is give you a little part of me to make you happy.
Use different painting techniques to best represent my creativity.
Experimentation, research and innovation are the basis of my art, I try always a symbiosis of aesthetics, material and spiritual '.
My work is in many private collections not only in Italy and Europe, but also in the United States, Canada, South America and Asia.
Beginning in 2008 the work 'Abstraction Metropolitan' 'Abstraction inner' and 'Amazon'.

Mauro Di Francescantonio, 'Maurocaribe', began painting at the age of eleven, but only through a long process, which has quickly established itself as careful interpreter of the landscape, he landed a thorough deconstruction, in which you may well recognize as he comes close to the paintings of Jackson Pollock, standing on the line of abstract expressionism.
The further away germs of his images but could also be found in some details of the paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, from which, a number of evaluation, seem to spring in the painting of Mauro Di Francescantonio multicolored shards, combined or intersected often supple strokes, as in a kaleidoscope of infinite combinations. And who has never been able to resist the ineffable charm of these geometries? One can not but observe, however, as in the works of Di Francescantonio, these are further broken down into a never-ending quest for harmony of lines and colors whose outcome, in an apparent informality of the composition, however, it can also suggest certain dream images glimpsed in margin of future worlds described by the fantasy stories of the best cinematography.
In his most recent production, the artist, in approaching all ''lyrical abstraction' advocated by Georges Mathieu, is expressed even more essential, and the movement of course random splashes of paint takes place on color backgrounds of perfect geometry, now juxtaposed in different gradations and now dissonant, so that the sign - as he says - to be configured in a balanced synthesis of composition.
But if, even in Friedrich, the dissolution of form stems from the inexplicable and irresistible force of nature, for our Maurocaribe, it manifests the equally irresistible power of imagination. And it is in the contemplation of his pictorial outcome that the viewer takes in the entire extraordinary fantastic vision of the author, expressed in images of balance and harmony of light and color that seems to calm down all his creative torment.
