Francesca Apicella

Francesca Apicella

Inspired by strong feminine attributes, she creates classic portraiture with symbolic, geometric, and natural elements. Her work tends towards mixed media paintings, composed mainly of oil and acrylic.

Ultra smooth metal and wooden panels are the chosen “canvas” for these art pieces, adding to the mystical, humanesque-like quality of the finished portrait.

With the final piece uninterrupted by brush strokes and texture, this allows the artist to add minute details and a surreal-like finish that would have otherwise been unachievable.

Francesca has a background in 3D animation and studied Software Development for Animation, Games and Effects at Bournemouth University. This technical background has inspired some of the more mathematical and algorithmic elements of her work, whilst simultaneously incorporating classic portraiture techniques.
