FRANCESCA GNAGNARELLA is an Australian contemporary abstract artist, living and working in Perth, Western Australia since 2007. She started exhibiting in Paris prior to finishing her degree at Sorbonne University and she held her first solo exhibition in Rome, Italy, in 2006.
The artist incorporates bold brushstrokes and dripped paint together with thinned veiled stains to created shifting layers of colour.
Gnagnarella’s artworks are recognized among her art followers for the use of 23 Carat Gold leaf, which enriches the painting with a unique luminosity and elegance.
Bold yet sophisticated; the artist’s works translate classic indulgence into a sleek modern style.
Francesca exhibits regularly between Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia and her paintings have been collected and sought after by numerous private and corporate collectors in Italy, France, UK, USA, Japan, China, Singapore and Australia, including the Director of the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Dr Stefano Carboni.
