AUGUSTUS FRANCIS

Abstract Painter

Augustus Francis was born in 1986 in Santa Monica, USA, to abstract landscape artist Margaret Francis and Abstract Expressionist Sam Francis. He moved to the United Kingdom in 1998 and since graduating with a degree in Fine Art from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2009, he has been exhibited at solo and group shows around the world including the USA, Germany, Japan and the UK. Francis attempts to evoke the sensation of the sublime. As he explains, “I paint what I cannot see, I paint speed, I paint rhythm, I paint time, I paint gravity, I paint movement, I paint the immaterial not the material.”
