Francesco Lietti - Color of Asia
Since 2006, Francesco Lietti has embraced Hong Kong, channeling his love for the city into vibrant works inspired by his symbiotic relationship with travel and discovery themes.
His connection with Hong Kong began in 2005, overwhelmed by its colors, scents, and images, prompting him to return and stay. Lietti's art encapsulates the city's essence through simple, humorous, and almost caricatured forms, employing striking colors to portray the iconic harbor skyline. His paintings oscillate between reality and fantasy, utilizing acrylics, oils, and collage for texture, culminating in a glossy resin finish.
Beyond Hong Kong, Lietti captures the vivid hues of Asian destinations like Vietnam, Bali, Rajasthan, and the Philippines, merging reality with a magical world. Born in Lecco, Italy, Lietti studied architecture in Milan, Paris, and London, with his works gracing private collections globally.
Francesco Lietti's art is a testament to his enduring fascination with the captivating landscapes and cultures he encounters.
