about


Contemporary painter Gianfranco Cioffi, born and raised in Italy and currently residing in Los Angeles, California, has participated in shows all over the United States and Europe.

Through Calligraphy pens and brushes, Bamboo stick and pastels, Sumi ink and Watercolor, Gianfranco forever captures a precious moment in time with the stroke of his hand.

There's a combination of minimal balance, movement, and seductive emotional gestures in his chosen colors and fully focused lines. The scheme of his painting invites the observer to move into an unknown space that activates our deep, hidden, and sometimes forgotten memories. Gianfranco speaks to the turbulence inside of us.
