Francesca Sara Seghezzi was born in Palazzolo sull’Oglio in 1979. She graduated in Arts at Liceo Artistico Statale in Bergamo and attained a degree in Scenography at Accademia delle Belle Arti in Milan in 2005. During her academic course she contributed to the creation of “Tende al mare” by E. Luzzati and created illustrations for the stylist G. Bello (Amorphose) in the project “Fra love acrochat”. She was awarded a scolarship in 2003 in Tenerife, where she discovered different and unknown art styles.
After completing her degree, in 2006 she began to work as a scenographer around the world, developing a passion for different cultures. She has lived in Mexico for some months and, inspired by her muse Frida Kahlo, she started to paint on fabrics, finding unexpected ways of expression. She began to paint on clothes in 2000, working on creations by young emerging stylists. Her motto is: “make a dress unique and turn it into a wearable work of art”.
After some years, she got in contact with an international art movement which raised in her the will to show her art: she exhibited in London (Index – March 2014), Milan (June 2014), Berlin (February 2015), Brescia, Bergamo, Padova (Nowart).
On May 2015, she collaborated with the Nami group, telling fashion through her textile works.
In her art forms, equilibrium and a dynamic identity are disclosed. The actors of her works play as if they were on the scene. They wear mysterious masks and lose their corporeal limits in order to get back to life. With her clothes on, the performers wear a second skin, that helps them to “throw light” on what they really are. (Nadia Pedretti)
