Among one of the most interesting young artists on the Italian art scene, Francesco Carone was born in Siena in 1975, where he continues to live and work. He trained at the Institute of Art in Siena and at Florence’s Accademia delle Belle Arti. His work has found its way into both public and private collections, among which figure the Farnesina Collection at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
His art dwells on themes such as the transformation cycles of creative processes and his research starts from a personal interpretation of the universe surrounding us (a composite universe, made up of objects, signs and attachment), through which he creates works that hover around a theme or a dominant thought, often linked to the history and practice of art, to very evocative effect. Since 1994 he has been actively exhibiting in the Italian art world.
