Francisco Silva – This Looks Familiar

March 1 @ 8:00 am - May 19 @ 5:00 pm

About the Artist:

Francisco Silva was born in Lima, Peru. When he was three his family immigrated to the United States settling in New Jersey where he was raised. Encouraged by his parents, he began drawing at an early age. While attending Parsons School of Design he studied composition, color and oil painting as well as graphic design. After graduating, he continued oil painting and exhibited in various group shows at that time.

Francisco started working as a graphic designer at an art magazine that took up much of his time and eventually stopped painting. His profession turned from graphic design, to web design, and finally to web development. January 2019 marked his return to painting after many years of absence. He began with landscapes inspired by his backpacking trips on the Appalachian Trail.

Currently, his work has grown to include themes portraying the struggles of the everyday person. His influences include Edward Hopper and the Social Realist painters of the 1920s and 1930s. The rich textiles of his Peruvian roots are reflected in his use of vibrant color and his brushwork is a combination of loose, painterly strokes and controlled detail.
