Francesco D'Isa

Since he was born in September 1980 (Firenze - Italy), Francesco D'Isa loves synthesis and hates biography.

He studied philosophy at the University of Firenze. He's self-taught as an artist, his fascination with visual imagery has propelled him into mastering the required skills.

He published most of his digital and traditional artworks in the Italian art & literature magazine "Mostro", but also in other magazines, in Italy like abroad. Fashion imagery as long as contemporary and historical art tradition are the background where his imagination works.

He love things in the very moment of their birth, when they get their definition. When horror meet beauty, horror and beauty are defining each other. He try to catch this particular moment using mostly human (females) form. An image must catch attention but also teach a form of contemplation

Horror and Beauty


Francesco D'Isa


His work has a modern appearance but in fact it has it's foundation in a wide array of traditions.

Especially the used techniques, digital media in combination with photography, are responsible for the modern feel of his works, but if you take a closer look you will recognize the classical poses of the figures, no matter how deformed they are. Does this whole background mean I consider the work of D'Isa some kind of plagiarism? No, not at all, lets set this straight first. I think of his work as very original. I really think that seeing the whole art, both contemporary and historical, as a basket of ideas. A set of icons yours to use, to recreate and to communicate as one of the best effort of the Post-modern culture. And Francesco D'Isa is using them in the best possible way with the endless possibilities the digital media is providing. (from "Art of Love")
