Rooted in the legacy of Italian masters, both of the Renaissance and Modernism, Italian painter Silvio Franzini composes visual symphonies of color on his canvas through transcendent hues and mystically irregular forms. Synthesizing music with painting, Franzini dexterously arranges harmonies of primary colors into soothingly serene melodies. The artist’s sensitivity towards the painterly sounds of music is palpable to the viewer, as we visualize the lyrical resonance of colors and shapes. Soft textures characterize his brushwork, allowing the sumptuous qualities of paint to become irresistibly perceptible to the viewers’ eye. As richly spontaneous as his work might seem, Franzini meticulously plans and researches his works, studying carefully the example of the likes of Leonardo da Vinci or Kandinsky. Working from this base, Franzini blends his innate aestheticism in order to articulate a uniquely visual sound. “Since i was a child, listening to music, I was attracted to the “colors” of sound and the “sounds” of colors,” he says.
A native Italian, Silvio Franzini lives and works in Parma, Italy. He frequently exhibits at prestigious venues in Italy and abroad, receiving national and international recognition, and gratifying approval from both the public and critics alike.
