Francesco Stumpo is a San Francisco based designer, artist and photographer. Originally from Venezuela and Italian descents from Calabria, he grew up in between the Caribbean coast and cities, green mangoes and roadtrips, and a curiosity for meaning, conversation and palm trees.
As an artist, Francesco is known for his fine art, mixed-media and illustration work that converges architecture, abstraction, vibrant colors and organic frameworks. He’s inspired by city infrastructures, geographies and landscapes, and the space in between people and the built environment. He is currently participating in ArtSpan's Art-In-Neighborhood program with a group-exhibition at Ritual Coffee Valencia St until August 27. He also completed his first pop-up art show in San Francisco in December 2018, including past participations at various institutions in Venezuela between 2006 and 2013, with a first solo artist exhibit in 2012.
Select collaborations include Adhesivo Magazine’s Venezuelan Artist Collective (2017), and the Brooklyn Art Library through the Sketchbook Project (2017). Online publications like the Island Review (2018), Ballpitmag (2017) and KooZArch (2017) in London.
