Francesco Clemente (American (born Italy, active New York and India), born 1952)
Clemente was born in Naples, lives in New York, and travels often to India. The richly layered and diverse cultures of all these places inform his imagery, which is dense with strange metamorphoses and fragmentations reflecting his immersion in a kind of world culture that bridges ancient and modern, East and West.
