Francesco Cafiso started his career as a Performing Artist; touring Europe in the 1980’s into the early 1990’s as a composer, guitarist, and singer. Always intrigued by Antonini Gaudi’s work, he returned to Italy where he studied the Ancient Art of Mosaic. As part of his course work he did Mosaic Restoration in both North Africa and Italy.
In 1999 he met his wife Kristina Della Valle in Evian, France where they opened their first gallery together. It was during this period that Francesco started working with enamel on glass, creating a stunning collection of Glass Art Lamps.
They opened their gallery; Colori Viventi Fine Art and Design, in Lake County, California in 2013, and now have their studio/showroom in Clearlake Oaks, Ca
Now featuring a new collection of paintings done with metal leaf on canvas, the Jazz collection. We hope you will enjoy this as much as we do and add a piece to your own private collection.
