Giovanni Frangi was born in 1959 in Milan, where he lives and works. After a series of collective exhibitions, in 1983 he had his first solo exhibition at La Bussola Gallery in Turin. Soon he began to attract the attention of critics, poets and writers, who wrote essays and poems for his catalogues between 1986 and 1997. The following years, Giuseppe Frangi’s work was exhibited abroad for the first time, with solo and group shows in Bern, Barcelona, New Orleans, Lausanne, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. The artist work explores the power of colour in landscapes influenced by the passing of the seasons and the light. Frangi’s early work was strongly connected to the Northernexpressionist culture, together with the luminism post-impressionist research. Reality is what really interests the Artist and what he tirelessly wants to investigate. His research goes beyond the false problem of figuration, trusting his own inner vision which allows him to discover a different reality and to represent it without using realism as the main reference. He reaches full mastery of his images once these have been destroyed, crushed and turned into lyrical visions of the everyday life. In May 2015, M77 Gallery in Milan hosted Giovanni Frangi solo show La Legge Delle Giungla (The Law Of The Jungle), the first show after few years of absence of the Artist from his native city.
