I STILL LOVE is Franko B’s first solo exhibition in London for seven years and features a new series of embroidered canvases, never before shown in the UK.

The canvases, which depict animals, flowers, portraits and the male body, as well as images of torture and war, return to the central themes of Franko B’s work – death, eroticism, intimacy, pain and compassion. These recurrent motifs find a delicate new means of expression through the exclusive use of red cotton on unprimed canvas.
A bold, eclectic artist, and for many years a leading figure on the international performance art scene, Franko B continues to celebrate and express the beauty of existence in his work, focusing on powerful and emotive imagery. I Still Love follows on from the artist’s recent solo exhibition at PAC (Pavilion of Contemporary Art) in Milan.
