THINGS THAT MAKE ME CRY - Exhibition in Newcastle

 

Franko B:  Things that Make me Cry 

Globe Gallery, Newcastle

12th June - 3rd July 2021
 
“Things that Make me Cry” showcases Franko B’s ‘Lost Boys’ - a series of individually hand-crafted, ceramic figures and sculptures both fragile and powerful in their significance and symbolism. 

The exhibition draws from Franko B’s childhood in Milan and experiences he encountered when he was taken into care. This early stage of his life left such an imprint on Franko that it has become an integral part of his identity and a prevalent theme within his work
