"Art is life and only life. "
~Gianfranco Paolozzi

Gianfranco was born in a small Italian village in 1952. He has always been an artist and musician; he remembers drawing and creating art from as early as preschool and received his prized accordion at the age of 9 (which he continues to play while performing with his Paolozzi Tango Trio).

As a young man in the 60's, he sold two oil paintings to pay for a vacation around Italy with friends. It was then he started experimenting with photography. After completing his Italian military duty of service; he followed the love of his life to America in 1972, married her and now have 3 grown children. The 80's were full of art shows throughout Silicon Valley and the decade in which his first piece of the "Collagements" series was born (using photographs on plexiglass). The 90's brought several solo shows for Gianfranco which led to a greater expansion of his presence in San Jose's illustrious art and music scene. Presently, he continues to be prolific with his “Journals” series and has officially switched the titles of all his art pieces, past and present, to "Journals" because they are forever evolving until they are sold.
