Francisco Centofanti

His work has been exhibited extensively and is collected by clients in New York, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tokyo, Paris, Stockholm, Florence and London. Amongst his many international collectors are art dealer Martin Summers, financier Mark Lapidus, writer Nigel Hinton, Don Foster MP and lead singer from The Who Roger Daltrey CBE.

"Francisco Centofanti is a fabulous artist. I particularly love his landscape paintings - he captures light and colours brilliantly." Roger Daltrey CBE

"From the time I left Florence in 1999 I have been drawing and painting practically non-stop, constantly searching and exploring different mediums and subjects, trying to fuse the old and the new to come up with a visual language that will speak to people in modern times and will bring joy, wonder and a sense of the great mystery."
