Francesca Bifulco

Art Mentor

Francesca Bifulco (she/her) is a native Southern Italian painter and multimedia artist based in Los Angeles since 2013. She holds a BA in Visual Arts for Set Design from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. Bifulco’s stark line work fluctuates between large-scale two-dimensional depictions on canvas, sculptural representations on wood, and immersive black box installations. Her dynamic technique allows her to crisscross the figurative and the abstract spheres, pushing the medium of painting to a multilayered storytelling. Her creative process is driven by an anthropological approach, deepened in field documentation, and influenced by social, cultural, and historical contexts. Her most distinctive subject has been crowds of people coming together and crossing paths. Bifulco has exhibited in Italy, Japan, Texas and in Los Angeles where she has won an award from Barnsdall Art Park and has gained an ongoing support from MOZAIK Philanthropy Art Foundation. Her work is included in several private collections and has been featured on Riot Material, LA Weekly, New American Paintings, Juxtapoz. Bifulco is a member of the multimedia husband-wife artist duo, Card 0 Collective and has recently joined the LA based-women lead FARE Contract Coalition that advocates for better business practices within the art world.
