Francesco Igory Deiana: born in Milan, Italy, lives and works in San Francisco. Known for his probing and large and ball point pen drawings on paper, where the flickness of feelings shines through the gestural expressivity of lines. His pursuit bounds together the connections between man, nature and the social system we're living in.
In his portraits natural and civilization elements are melted together through geometrical frames, becoming more and more abstract, up to the fading, like the clouds in his latest works: pure sensation.
