Curriculum

Franco Cisternino was born in Foggia (Italy) on 21 July 1969 and is now resident in Bientina (Pisa), Tuscany – Italy.
He lives his childhood in a humble and modest family climate, which has led him to grow fast and to provide not only his own needs, but often also his family’s needs.
His preference for drawing and painting, accompanying him from the childhood age, leads him to attend the State Art Institute of Foggia and to obtain the diploma of “Master of Art”.
It is during the school years that, studying, learning and deepening various pictorial techniques, such as oil, watercolor and graphite, enhances their artistic abilities already born. Since its inception, in fact, he has won numerous competitions and extemporaneous.
In order not to weigh on the family’s economy, while studying, he begins commissioning large-scale portraits, engravings and paintings (Advertising).
It thus develops a protective character and a sensitive mind that, until recently, led him to create works that represented landscapes and compromised environments by man’s hand.
Later she is interested in the teenage world, realizing works that reveal aspects and emotions of this delicate moment of human growth.
His latest production is directed at the “Music” and the “Woman” world.
Franco Cisternino is considered, as well as an extraordinary talent, one of the most interesting verists on the Italian landscape as, alongside perfection in every oil on canvas, we find a strength and a play of lights that attract, engaging, the spectator. In fact, since 2007, it is selected and called annually to participate in prestigious International Fairs of Contemporary Art, with a success that increases year after year.
The works of the “Music” pictorial cycle are not simply representations of instruments and musical notes, but they want to interpret the concept of melody as a unifier, as a language of the human soul and as a vital force capable of translating into poetry every minimal noise that surrounds it ‘man throughout his life.
The works of the “Woman” pictorial cycle are a scenographic and symbolic representation of the woman, both with the eyes of an artist and those of a man.
With these paintings one wants to represent women beyond the stereotypes of society: its essence, its humanity, its fragility and, at the same time, its strength.
The choice of color, in its monochromatic, slightly sewed, intends to give meaning to the mystery, life and / or memory.
The veil that wraps the woman has a multiplicity of meaning: the part that gently delivers the body is pink, almost to blend with its own skin; while the remaining part.
