Baldazzi Franco,

Of Tuscan origin, was born in Florence in 1969. The atmosphere that always embraces Firenze influences immediately this artist, somewhat "rebellious."

After school he decides to express immediately his artistic passion, but the clash with reality calms down the artist's enthusiasm in few years. He decides to frequent the studio of the Spanish painter Mari Carmen Mur in order to understand and see other realities and, perhaps, to understand the "secrets" of this art that fascinates him. He embarks on a "normal" working life without neglecting his artistic and creative streak and participates in several local exhibitions. He alternates periods of intense activity with long periods of reflection. With the birth of his three children and his new role of father, he finds again the energy and the will to express himself by taking over those ideas and projects that he set aside. He struggles to go back to the artistic activity and he goes through a phase he defines as a "black" period, making freehand works in a "dark" style. Despite the desire to get out of this almost "comatose" status in order to navigate into the colour, only in 2015, after a bad illness, he succeeds in finding the right energy to speak with “colours”. Creative and multifaceted artist, as he calls himself, his art is not attributable to schools or movements, it is expressed with strong and contrasting colours, inspired in every way and from every place, in that moment of time equal to a butterfly’s beating of wings.


Movimento. Movment

Painted in the middle of a melancholy period. The energy brought by the universe is captured by the artist and imprisoned on the canvas, premonitory of the near future of total energetic movement.


This work, in a first phase, was started in June 2020 in a euphoric, dazzling moment of an intuitive moment where everything was perfect. Where the combination, or rather the union of two elements, inspiration and color, give the best of that moment... of life. That instant that will never be repeated, that will never be the same as any other moment you have lived or will live. And so two months later, still mindful of that instant, with brushes, colors, courage, colors and brushes and a personal "secret" ingredient, I wanted to complete it. The result is different from what I imagined, and as I mentioned a few lines above nothing is like before! THIS IS THE RESULT, this is the result no more and no less. Of course it has a strong impact, the black stands out in abundance, but every time I pass by it captures my attention and amazed at the result I walk that vortex to the center with eyes and mind scrutinizing every detail, every shade, every ripple of how the color has clung to the canvas, even curious about what will be at the finish line.
