"Meet Wishful, Wicked Painter Francesca Bifulco"  by Shana Nys Dambrot, LA Weekly

I process personal and collective aspects of the human experience channeling the coexistence of its duality through painting, mixed media, and multimedia. My interdisciplinary work of immersive environments interlaces sound, video, and performances enhanced by fabrication and lighting design.  My subjects have spanned from crowds and the force of plurality to individuals affected by social media culture, to men playing cards in a conflicted and underrepresented neighborhood of my native land of Naples, Italy.  In the current works I focus on three different themes: the sociopolitical awakening in the U.S. with emphasis on the constructs against women, exploring the effects of loss through preservation of memory, and reinterpreting the iconic LA palm tree as a symbol of the communal endurance of transplants and immigrants. My approach to the different narratives is permeated with an anthropological perspective essential to my overall creative process of exploring, relating, and giving back.

I am the other member of the multidisciplinary artist duo, Card 0 Collectiveand the artist ambassador for the LA based-female lead IAC (Immersive Arts Center), a nonprofit organization providing arts programs to at risk-youth and underserved communities.

My studio is located in Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles.
