About Francesco Simeti

Italian-born artist Francesco Simeti (b.  1968, Italy) uses images hidden in decorative pattern to point to a darker subtext. Concerned with how the public metabolizes violent imagery and information through the media, which often reduces horrific events to trivial episodes, Simeti comments on this desensitization and its potential repercussions. He received his degree in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts (Bologna) and lives and works in New York and Sicily.
