Francesco Cannone is an Italian abstract visual artist. Formerly an entrepreneur in the fashion industry, he has nurtured his passion for abstract painting since childhood. In 2009, he began exhibiting his works, exploring the expressive possibilities of acrylic on large canvases. His works have received recognition and positive reviews through participation in group exhibitions and scenic installations for classical music concerts.
He has participated in major exhibitions in Italian cities such as Naples, Palermo, Rome, Matera, Milan, and Florence, as well as international cities like Paris, Barcelona, and Liverpool. He was selected for the XII Florence Biennale in 2019 and the XIII Biennale in 2021.
Cannone’s works, spontaneous and intuitive, are representations of deep inner emotions. His work often evokes the great masters of abstract expressionism, including Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Mirò, and Arshile Gorky. It is clear that his inspiration derives from his soul and intuition. Francesco Cannone holds a deep respect and love for the Universe and all beings that inhabit it.
He is currently engaged in various new projects, which he will talk about shortly. He has had the privilege of showcasing his works in collaboration with Moovart of the Amedeo Modigliani Foundation in prestigious locations such as Castel dell’Ovo in Naples, Riba North in Liverpool, and the Franco Zeffirelli Museum in Florence. In the near future, he will be featured in significant international exhibitions, including New York, Berlin, Moscow, Japan, and other cities worldwide.
In 2021, some of his works found a new home in the collection of a Japanese collector. Additionally, he was a finalist for the Amedeo Modigliani Foundation Prize in 2022.
