Welcome to Franco Castelluccio Fine Art!

 

Artist Statement:

From its inception much of  modern art was meant to shock the viewer, to use originality to disturb us and break moral taboos at any cost. I believe modern art has become
soulless and sterile. After the initial shock, when viewed repeatedly modern art becomes boring, empty and vacuous, simply because it lacks one very important element - Beauty. Beauty is a value as important as truth and goodness.

I create my art to raise the viewers hopes and aspirations, to enrich our lives.
I believe the time has come for a revolutionary movement, to bring beauty back in art, especially Public Art. Art should be created not to simply portray reality or to shock us,
but to lift our ideals.To provide the opportunity to see the real in the light of the ideal.
