Francesca Strino was born in 1979 in Naples, Italy. She was born into an artistic family. Francesca’s powerful paintings reflect the influence of her father, Maestro Gianni Strino. She began studying art at the ‘Artistic Lyceum’ and then furthered her studies by attending the Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli with specialization in sculpture and portraiture. Strino became a pupil of the well-known master G. Di Fiore whilst at the Academy. Her potential as an artist was soon recognized and she was invited to submit her work for an exhibition held in 2002 celebrating the 250th Anniversary the Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli.
There is virtuosity in Francesca’s painting that should be admired in such a young artist. Manipulation of delicate brushstroke and a complex use of tone and chiaroscuro in Francesca’s paintings excite the eye and stir the soul. Her work is exhibited and collected throughout Europe and The United States.
