Francesco Cusumano

Already in my earliest childhood, paint and paper were my favourite "toys", and my passion for painting has continued to grow over the years.

At the beginning I painted figuratively and learned from the ground up how to look at the light/shadow games, the proportions and perspectives exactly and how to put them into practice. But soon the pure depiction of "reality" was too limited for me: I wanted to give shape to my feelings.

The turn to abstract painting opened up my very personal world of images to me. On this path, I was accompanied by the examination of the works of Hans Falk and Sam Francis and, above all, the painting lessons I was allowed to enjoy with Hans Ruedi Sieber.

Today I work exclusively in acrylic mixing technique, and painting has become one of the main contents of my life. In 2005 I became a member of the Zurich Artists' Association.
