Born in Genoa in 1950, Francesco Musante graduated first from the Liceo Artistico of the Ligurian capital and then from the Albertina di Belle Arti branch in Turin.

                        

His first artistic experiments date back to 1967: it is mostly abstract research on large backgrounds of color. The following year he began to exhibit his works in group exhibitions, painting competitions and awards.
The works of the years 69-70 are influenced by Pop Art and Rauschenberg's Combine Paintings: there are clear references to America through the use of writing and the inclusion of objects and wood.
In 1971 Musante decided to become a full-time artist.

In 1975 there was a change of direction: Musante devoted himself to figurative painting, initially creating a series of female figures inspired by Klimt and the Viennese Secession. A theme that he will explore for ten years using the most diverse techniques - from watercolor, oil, collage, engraving - and various media - canvas, wood, ceramic, plate, paper.

Little by little he also begins to work with graphics and watercolors, where the first narrative and fantastic ideas that distinguish his work from 1985 to the present day can be glimpsed: his "little men" appear that seem to have come out of a storybook and are inserted into contexts full of objects, characters and words. Musante's paintings finally leave the dramatic atmospheres and become lighter.

In Francesco Musante's works, the funny protagonists float in surreal atmospheres, in which the visual experience is accompanied by poetic phrases that sometimes evoke characters such as Fabrizio de Andrè, Pablo Neruda and Hans Christian Andersen, famous for their romantic compositions. Musante's screen prints and unique works are often enriched with polymateric details, collage and glitter, and are made in numerous formats. Among the latter, the most popular is the 8x10 cm silkscreen, a precious paper representing a specific subject such as the Lucky Door.

Musante's works are widely requested by a private and institutional public, therefore his medium-high quotations are stable.
