WELCOME

Who am I

Hi. My name is Dex Francolini, and I am a young emerging artists who aspires to make a significant impact on the world with my art.

My Story

From a young age I have always had a special connection with art, specifically painting and drawing. My ability has been strengthened by the support of tutors and my family, and I have grown to a point where I have started exhibitions to display my work. I love being in the art world, and as part of my development I want to have really good education, and for me the best way to proceed is to attend an Art Foundation course with London’s Slade School of Fine Arts. In order to be able to go I have been given responsibility to raise half of the funds.

Where I see myself in the future, who knows, but as a keen conservationist and environmentalist I could see myself as a budding conservation artist, or maybe developing conceptual art for films and the gaming industry.

What the Money will be Spent On

The money donated will be spent on the Art Foundation course, but any excess money will go towards accommodation, transport, and food.

After help from Barry Lewis and my tutor, I finally finished my Headdress for the Green City Events Ocean Plastics Campaign. I used many different materials including the corners of a sandcastle for the spires. My main colour palette was gold and green as they mimicked the colours of the. . . . .
