I Still Love is Italian artist Franko B’s first solo exhibition in London for seven years and features a series of embroidered canvases, never before shown in the UK.  A bold, eclectic artist, who for many years has been a leading figure on the international performance art scene, Franko B has selected a new approach and working method for this series of work. 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.
