Francesco Chiacchio lives and works in Florence. His work ranges from collage to drawing. He has illustrated books, records, posters and he's also drawn short graphic stories. From 2010 to 2012 he illustrated the cultural pages of the national daily La Repubblica Firenze. In 2009 he created the graphics for a multimedia project, X (Suite for Malcolm), wich was composed by the saxophonist Francesco Bearzatti for his Tinissima Quartet and performed in Europe and in the United States. In 2013 he showed a series of big works at the gallery Il Ponte in Florence for the exhibition “Il segno come racconto”. He loves to grow words in his “word-garden”, sprinkle them with different signs, watch them grow from afar and pick them for a drawing.
