Francesco Musante was born in Genoa in 1950. After he graduates from the artistic highschool and from its branch in Turin, he decides to apply for the Philosophy university in Genoa, and at the same time he attends painting course at the Academy of fine arts of Carrara. In the 60’s he’s already made its first artistic experiments, mostly about the color and starts to participate to group exhibitions, artistic contests and prizes. His works of this period and of the early 70s are influenced by the north american artistic movements, such as Pop art and Combine Painting.
In 1973 he debuts with a group and a personal exhibition in “Il Quadrifoglio Gallery” of La Spezia. In the same year he starts his engraver activity, and he is mentioned in the catalogue “Incisioni originali italiane e straniere dell’800 e moderne” by the Libreria Antiquaria of Dino and Paolo Prandi. Besides La Spezia, Musante attends the Sperone Gallery of Turin where he has the chance to meet the exponents of Arte Povera. In the 70s his art changes: now he focuses on figurative painting, expecially on woman figures that take inspiration from the artists of the Wien art nouveu.
From the 80s he is interested in graphic and watercolors: the second ones in particular, are very important because allow him to experiment with a fantasy taste for his works, as is possible to notice in his characters that seems to be taken from a fairy world, and then put in a world full of objects and words.
Flying girls with a heart in their hands, run after coloured clouds, male figures that run away from the colorfull rain of little hearts. Sometime a suspended wire becomes a symbol between reality and fantasy or between day and night. That’s why these small hearts, that seems to fall from the sky, change into symbols of universal love, the kind of that is able to contaminate everything and change the world destiny. Reality, fantasy, no-sense, mistery are mixed with real parts in Musante.
In 1984 he teaches Engraving Techniques in a professional course of the European Comunity and in 1987 he attends a personal exhibition in Vezzano Ligure. In 1992 his artworks are exposed in the Italian Embassy of Saudi Arabia. Not only art, but also illustration: he draws for several books and fairy tales books. From the ’70s he has the chance to exhibit abroad: Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, and New York (Museum of Modern Art of NY).
