Francesca Bifulco (b.1986) is a Los Angeles based visual artist from Paestum, Southern Italy.  Bifulco’s precise stark lines push a graphical sense through the medium of painting, fluctuating between large-scale canvases, textural wooden compositions and treatments, to multidimensional black box installations. Her dynamic line work simultaneously defines and blurs forms within a sentiment of controlled chaos, allowing her to crisscross the figurative and the abstract spheres. Bifulco’s subjects span from crowds and their behavioral impact, to individuals affected by the cultural transformation dictated by social media, men playing cards in a conflicted and underrepresented neighborhood of Naples, to extracting shapes from the physical environment. In her current works she turns her energy inward to explore the effects of personal loss and the rise from the ashes, while delving into the social awakening deriving from systemic injustices, racism, and the political turmoil in the US. Her most distinctive subject has been crowds coming together and crossing paths. Her approach to the different subjects is permeated with an anthropological perspective as an essential part of her overall creative process. 

Bifulco is a member of the LA based multimedia artist duo, Card 0 CollectiveHer studio is located in the Lincoln Heights area of Downtown Los Angeles.
