By creating intuitive,

repeated shapes, Lefty Out There (aka Franco Campanella) achieves the rare feat of working in contradictions. His work is both bold and intricate. Organic but uniform. A simple mark makes up a considerably more complex whole.

Lefty’s work was born on Chicago’s walls but has gained recognition by fine art galleries, interior designers, and fashion brands. His signature polymorphs are now on the forefront of virtual creativity and have spanned out across Europe, the US and Asia.

Following a spontaneous desire, Lefty’s pattern making makes the eye linger and yearn for interpretation – likened to cell structures and organisms, they call for the audience to pay attention to things that they take for granted. Without any claims of connotation or secrets, Lefty’s goal is to cover the world in his art; engulfing spaces so that every single surface has been marked. His aesthetic has been adjusted throughout his projects, from working in bold block paints through to fine lines that repeat his signature pattern over and over again.
