當弗朗西斯科 ‧ 列蒂 (Francesco Lietti) 第一次踏足亞洲，便深深地被城市活力、風貌人情所吸引。
The moment Francesco set foot in Asia the first time he was absorbed by the vibrancy, the energy, and the beauty of its people, landscapes, and cityscapes.
The number of possibilities, stories, and adventures seemed limitless and ready for him to plunge into and explore: the aromas, tastes, and colors are almost inebriating.
Francesco 以具有幽默感的童真視角來塗抹，用幾近諷刺的華麗筆觸來描畫遊歷過的城市；他運用鮮明的色彩，捕捉香港著名海港天際線的精髓，並使之成為自己的特色。他的畫徘徊於現實與幻想之間，大塊的顏料代表建築，細小的紋理色塊在城市景觀中舞蹈，給畫面以夢幻的、稍縱即逝的感覺。是次展覽，Francesco 將透過他的作品向觀眾表達，除了他對亞洲城市的陶醉外，更加入幕後元素: 靈感、經歷和情感。他將現實與魔幻世界融為一體，帶領我們感受這驚鴻一瞥。而展覽中許多作品也是首次在香港亮相。
Painting is a fluid act, which allows the artist to re-live certain experiences and adventures, many of which are related to travel and discovery. After digesting these experiences he brings them to life, almost subliminally, onto the canvas. The composition, the choice of colors, and the key elements of the painting begin to appear. Francesco relaxes into the process and refines what’s already there, layer-by-layer, element-by-element, color-by-color, until the memory of the place, the adventure, is brought to life. In Colors of Asia, Francesco shows a collection of his works while providing insightful, behind the scenes looks at the making of his paintings: the inspiration, the experiences, and the passion. Many of the featured exhibition pieces are debuting in Hong Kong for the first time.
