LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Italian self-taught artist Francesca Borgo (b 1970) has been working professionally for over five years, creating soothing and dreamy abstract landscapes.
A former researcher in psychology, she has transferred her passion and interest for human expression and for environment into her current aesthetic journey. She loves to mix different materials to enrich the visual experience with subtle tactile aspects.
Her painting 'Breathe me' (135x100 cm, 2021) has been selected by the Royal Academy of Arts for the Summer Exhibition 2022, Burlington House, London (UK), 21 June - 21 August 2022.
She works in Italy and internationally on residential and hospitality projects. Her emotional and ethereal works are in private collections mainly in the USA, Europe and the UK.
