MONDAY



But if the light falls, my heart remains there, If there is a thought that turns it on is to look for Monday...

Lucio Dalla, Lunedì

Since May 2015 every Monday I publish on my website (and share on my social) one of my artwork or anything that struck me: a reading, a song, an unexpected meeting. Why on Monday? Because on Monday all starts again, for better or for worse, like it or not, but it's better that way! Up with Monday, and with the life that comes to you anyway.

Francesco Zavatta 2019 Parking 140x200cm tecnica mista su tela

Monday 11th November 2019 – Parking and Opening OPEN SPACE exhibition

The wait is finally over and on Saturday starts this new adventure which is OPEN SPACE! The appointment is at 6 pm at the Museum of Palazzo Marliani Cicogna in Busto Arsizio (Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II). The artwork I show for this Monday is the symbolic image of this exhibition, chosen together with the curator Giuseppe Frangi because it seemed the most suitable for communicative power and meaning. I recently returned to Arese to review the place where this work […]

2019 Duomo Milano 25x35cm olio su tela

Monday 4th November 2019 – Duomo

The tram wires in Piazza Duomo in Milan often catch my attention, because I always see them so thin that they are lost in the white of the facade. Moreover, they convey to me a sense of fragility, of smallness that makes me want to always look at them. The color of the sky in this Cathedral is very pacifying, as if all those whirling and vital movements are embraced by the colored sky. The yellow color from the Madonnina […]

2019 San Siro Milano 24x32cm tecnica mista su carta

Monday 28th October 2019 – San Siro

The San Siro stadium is a historical monument that is part of the history of Milan, it is an icon. At San Siro, I am very struck by the strong impact that you get when are in front of him: as you get closer, the lines of the structures appear more and more dynamic and light, and it is this feeling that I tried to make using tempera. In my opinion art is like sport: made of tension, disappointments, satisfactions, […]

2019 Stazione Centrale I 24x32cm tecnica mista su carta

Monday 21st October 2019 – Central Station

In this artwork on paper about the Milan Central Station you can see the Frecciarossa trains in motion and the architecture in the background of the station, with the respective lines of the empty tracks. Painting the places I live allows me to break the ice that there is c when I have to start a new artwork. These directions and perspective lines are an innovation of this artwork and also others that will be present at the OPEN SPACE exhibition, […]

Skyline Milano olio su tela 30x30cm Francesco Zavatta Mi-View

Monday 14th October 2019 – Skyline

When I look at the sky and get lost in its amazing lights, I am fine. In this oil painting on canvas I have depicted the skyline of Milan with the symbolic buildings of this city, which initially entered my life impetuously, then slowly brought out the best part of me through the use of colors. A room of the next exhibition OPEN SPACE will be dedicated to these colorful skies that have conquered my way of seeing the sky […]

Monday 7th October 2019 – Airport

In 2019 I made several trips by plane, and consequently I had the opportunity to see the airport structures and take-off and landing runways. Perhaps because of the work on the parking lots, the lines in the runways and the airport environment fascinated me and I started painting them. A friend noticed that, since I started painting airports, something different has taken shape: I go much more towards the observer as communication. In this work, which measures 50x60cm, through that […]

2019 Parking dittico 140x240cm acrilico su tela

Monday 30th September 2019 – Parking

In this painting the color il like an explosion. It is a diptych of 140x240cm in total, mixed media on canvas. I used the very liquid color, throwing it on the canvas like water bombs that in such impact give off these so vital sprays. I like this freshness in color! Then I created this white line, which gives order to all those drips. In this last part of the year there are two important events: first of all I […]

2019 Duomo di Milano 23x31cm olio su carta

Monday 23rd September 2019 – Milan’s Cathedral

The twilight lights above the Milan Cathedral are full of wonder. Then, after the backlash, I try to convey on the white surface of the canvas what excited me most. In this paper, in the upper part the are the colors of the night loom, while among the spiers still we see the warm tones of the sunset. In the end, the touch of bright color on the Madonnina gives identity to this place that always reawakens me, even from […]
