Artists Detail

FRANCESCO CLEMENTE

Italian Contemporary artist, who resides and works in Italy, New York and India, is one of the important figures of the Transavanguardia movement emerging in 1981 where a group of Italian artists shy away from the then blooming Conceptual art movement to figurative art and symbolism as their artistic approach, Traveling back and forth to India during the 1970s, Clemente’s experience and appreciation in the way of life, religious beliefs and local cultures of the country have been incorporated in his art, which eventually become the impression people have for his artistic identity. Clemente recently held an exhibition in Blain | Southern India Art Fair 2018 in India earlier this year.
