About the Item

Franco Mauro Franchi was born in Castiglioncello (Livorno) on 9 October 1951. He completed his artistic studies at the Lucca State Institute of Art and the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence under the guidance of the sculptors Vitaliano De Angelis and Oscar Gallo, masters in its technical training. In Cecina he met the painter Sirio Bandini, in whose gallery he exhibited repeatedly establishing a relationship of deep friendship and esteem that often led them to share an intense exhibition activity and cultural initiatives starting from the years 1969-70. In 1976 he entered the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence at the school of his master Oscar Gallo and will remain there until 1989, when he won the national competition for Cattedre, taking first place. He was then assigned the Chair of Sculpture and taught for a year at the Academy of Fine Arts in Foggia, from the following year until 2000 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. In October 2000 he obtained a transfer to the Fine Arts Academy of Carrara. He has taken part in important exhibitions, such as the Rome Quadriennale, and has set up personal exhibitions in Italy and abroad, such as the Museum, Fondation Gianadda in Martigny (Switzerland), Fort Barraux Grenoble (France), Belle Usine in Fully (Switzerland) , at the Archaeological Museum of Florence, at the Villa Medicea of ​​Cerreto Guidi (Florence), at the Casa Frabboni of San Pietro in Casale (Bologna). He performed monumental works, as the fountain in Piazza della Libertà in Cecina in 1978, for public and private spaces in Italy, Switzerland, Japan and the United States. He works with equal participation the stone and the bronze expressing a sense of the wide and solar form that aspires to represent in the predominant image of the woman, the vital force that pervades the universe.

    Uil Owl Bronze Sculpture Girl with Owl on Head Wisdom Contemporary In Stock The statues of Erwin Meijer are subtle with a recognizable, personal handwriting. They breathe the atmosphere of a narrative poem, where the reader not only encounters the artist, but also himself. Though the statues are realistic, there is still enough room for interpretation. Do the artist and the viewer see the same story? It doesn’t really matter, because the beauty in his work has a autonome quality. How can we interprete the work in the conscious and unconscious brain? The first will be hit by the clear styled forms and the technical know-how. The second by his favourite theme, nature, the loving images of men and animals, often together in harmony. Very common in his work is the symbolic worth within the story. The viewer experiences an emotion, seeing a human or human presence, funny or vulnerable. You sympathize with the myth and feel the power of the methaphorical meaning.

With a signature beyond countries and cultures. . East and west meet each other in many sculptures, like Europe and the bull...
