Francesco Baiocchi was born in Abbadia San Salvatore( SI) March 22, 1982. Son of a nursery teacher and a skilled worker , with a great artistic flair to every kind of visual art : sculpture, painting , drawing. The father about at forty years old ( when Franceco has ten ) will begin to devote himself entirely to art.
A love for the art that Baiocchi's family puts its roots also in previous generations , with a grandfather, sculptor and craftsman. From an early age , then, Francesco comes into contact with this environment , attending exhibitions and competitions in painting, to which the father participated frequently.
From his parents , both lovers of culture, Francesco also receives an education based on literature and music. The latter will prove then the ' other great passion of Baiocchi , who since the age of ten years , starts the study of classical guitar at first attending music courses municipal and then continuing with the study of the self-taught guitar acoustic and electric , bass and drums, production softwares..
Despite his artistic skills will attend the High School , never putting aside the art world.
Later, after the high school, and after a period of indecision , he enrolled first at the Faculty of Cultural Heritage , film and theater at the University of Siena , then philosophy at Florence, where he graduated in 2008. These are the years in which along with the study of Philosophy Francesco continues in parallel with painting and music. It will be after graduation that begin to devotes himself entirely to his artistic gifts , devoting more and more time to music and painting.
The painting of Baiocchi, acrylic on canvas, expresses a real movement where the computer components represented and their electronics are moving sinuously on the canvas to create urban landscapes that generate , in turn, real worlds . The idea of electronic printed is given by ' use of bright yellows with which the artist depicts precise lines that are nothing more than the pure energy of communication. The brilliant and strong colors fit in real conflict , which after tend to a harmonious composition .
In some works the radiant colors of the electronic components are flanked by flowers, birds, orchids, how to remember the importance and aesthetic beauty of the wonders of the natural world , a reality that should not be neglected, so to arrive at a fair use of the new powerful means of communicatio. The new networks involved in political attitudes, economics and avant-gardes are characterized by a greater awareness of both the individual and the respect for the individual and the community ( social, natural , ecological).
It is in this continuous motion that the energy is represented as a form of the same communication . And it is the mutation of the forms , which occurred due to the use of complex computer systems and media and multimedia such as the Internet, which you create a new perception of the world , information, a simultaneity of images, video , writing, and as the Cartesian res extensa invades the globe in real time , creating in turn a universe unto itself.
Francesco loves to travel and visit so , while remaining very impressed, places like The Prado in Madrid, the Tate Modern in London, the Dali Museum in Spain, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The same for tnew forms of artistic expression present in every place in the world. Despite his observation for the classics the great stimulus to his painting is given by important figures in contemporary art , in fact , after years of Florence in 2010 , he moved to Berlin. The charm of this city, as well as the contemporary cultural importance that the German capital is gaining in years, can only increase his artistic stimuls. Berlin's museums such as the Hamburger Bahnhof museum will solicit his interest , and in this city , in addition to paint numerous works , will affect the demo of a disc, the summary of his musical project : "Motherboards Project" that is , through sound, the total view of art. His music does not break from painting ever , hues that dominate his canvases , and here is that these ideas take shape during his concerts where the sound goes with - visual installations . It is true synesthesias , where the music binds to see . And this connection is made even stronger by the painting that does the same on stage , just to convey a message of inseparability of his art.
The sounds created , like his paintings , can not be enclosed in a precise current , in him are the influences of Pop, of ' Electronic, Experimental Rock, noise and everything is bound to a new trial .
The experience of the artist does not abandon his idea of aesthetic beauty , the pars destruens consists of a reception personnel of the contents, to give life to their own pars construens , which consists in finding a methodology always ready to destruction , evolution. This creates a strong impulse iconoclast, a desire for freedom that is articulated on both the emotional over the rational sphere , representing the suffering and lack of safe ground on which to walk. These are the traits which comes thanks also to philosophical studies undertaken , where the great minds of thinking studied have provided an example of a rational inquiry , logic and science, without ever arriving at a reliable stability , because of the lack of absolute truths . And it is especially the thought at the end of the twentieth century that fascinates him , where we tried to establish links between art and logic of bringing up the various modes of expression (music - painting - literature ) . It is the idea of change that dominates the continuous exceeding of the old beliefs , where the search for answers is in vain . His art , therefore, does not want to turn this answers , nor reveal truth, but goes to the emotional , dealing with loneliness produced by rational thought , and instead , the possible avenues to pursue , ways that open up the imagination of Francis, as real own images, then made into the canvas , and accompanied by his music. The artist's universe is populated by expanding ideas and forms that are transported in his paintings with vitality and dynamism. The base from which part is black , the first color caressing her canvas, and from it develop the worlds of bright colors, creating a real tendency to rework an ' amalgam of ideas. The pigments energetic , fresh, trying to resolve the tangle of ideas, images, memories. Emotions are the real protagonists of these baths of color, sometimes the forms are displayed and transported other hand, are a pure gesture of expression that leads to strokes abstract. Francesco also develops an interest in video art and sound design approaching to the most innovative techniques.
