Smp21 Lab meets Francesco Baronti
I was born in Livorno in 1973 by a father of Livorno and a Puerto Rican mother. During my childhood in Somalia with my family: this experience will be an important training path for my creativity for me. In 1995 I joined the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where I attended the painting courses of prof. Gustavo Giulietti. I exhibit at national and international exhibitions; I am invited to three editions of the Malindi Biennale, by the artist of the visual poetry Sarenco who is interested in my work. Africa is for me a path that has always belonged to me. In 2010 ART in ITALY dedicates the cover of the magazine. I exhibit in the Magi 900 Museum of Pieve di Cento with world famous artists such as George Lilanga, Eyes Malangu, Julien Blain, Shozo Shimamoto and Sarenco. In 2011, I was invited to the 54th Venice Biennale in the “Padiglione Italia in the World” project. I am increasingly convinced that Art is the cosmic structure that makes us appreciate and taste the aromas and the plagues of the space around us. I live, travel and work in Italy, Puerto Rico and Africa.
