Francesca Brivio, from Italy, learned how to paint very young under the artist Massimo Bollani, focusing in oil painting on canvas.
She graduated at artistic high school and then studied design. After a period in London, as well as a few other experiences in the fashion industry, She began teaching and working in a new field that allowed her to travel.
Currently, She paints in her new studio.
She is drawn to subjects such as portraits, the human bodies, animals,
mythology, water and untouched landscapes.
“When, looking at a painting, you immediately recognize the author, it means that She is original, coherent and authentic. In Francesca Brivio's canvases we immediately grasp her decisive and dynamic traits that are made delicate, despite the rapid brush strokes, with harmonious colors and the lightness of the paint. A constructive and pictorial gesture, fast and without second thoughts that animates the canvases inside, giving her subjects a manifest vitality and a strong emotionality. Francesca focuses on numerous themes even though the feminine world prevails while never stereotyped or banal. On the contrary, her elegant and fluid style gives the figures, simultaneously, a unique and universal character. These are introspective and lonely characters who experience emotions that we all feel and share. Sometimes they appear to us indeterminate but never uncertain or weak, instead gritty and strong despite the sweetness that inhabits them. Spontaneity is the technical and expressive mean that Francesca chooses and that allows her to transfer what she feels and what she experiences at that moment on the canvas. In fact, the Author must always finish the paintings “alla prima”, the next day would be too late. Her excellent technique is never an end in itself, but placed at the service of the emotion she feels and that asks to get out to stick on the canvas. It is difficult not to be enchanted and captivated by her works; we are faced with a rare case of artistic intensity, maturity and truth.”
