Keane: the wine stain paintings – tempus fugit

Keane: the wine stain paintings – tempus fugit

Usually if some red wine is spilt on a white tablecloth then people immediately reach for the salt or fizzy water in an attempt to stop the red wine from staining the cloth. Time is of the essence, as any delay in removing the spilt wine can mean a mark on the white surface which becomes […]

The Invisible Wall in Barga

The Invisible Wall in Barga

The project is actually very simple

An extremely ugly large reinforced concrete wall 6 metres high and 20 metres long in one of Barga’s prime public parks just below the medieval walled historic centre of the city. The project is to make this eye sore invisible as much as possible so that it blends into the natural scenery of the wooded […]

The Wine Glasses of Barga

The Wine Glasses of Barga

Works by Keane and Tiziana Fontana - article by Frank Viviano

The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The Love Project in the cradle of the Renaissance - The plan is to place two paintings in five of the most important piazzas of Tuscany’s five most important cities: Florence, Siena, Livorno, Pisa and Lucca. Anyone who wants them can take them away, at no cost. Absolutely free. This month: Siena starting from the Pretto Prosciutteria and finishing at the Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena - the oldest surviving bank in the world.

The most conventional chapter in the saga of the Love Project was the exhibition that opened it — and even that had its unusual twists. On the 13th and the 14th of June last year, the well-known local artists Keane and Fabrizio da Prato inaugurated a joint exhibition of 100 paintings. The venue was not a gallery in Barga or Lucca, […]
