Franco Nonnis 60 years old, lives and works in Cagliari, self-taught painter, his passion began as a child when he attended the workshop of his sculptor grandfather. Life experiences and travels in different parts of the world have generated evident contaminations in his works.

The creative work of Franco Nonnis is aimed at the different phases of human life, often autobiographical, offering the viewer authenticity and colors where everything can be represented, from joy to suffering but always with harmony without giving in to sensationalism.

Franco's works are permanently exhibited in London at Le Dame ArtGallery, King & Rose Gallery, GBA & Design. In Sardinia, at Alghero Airport, he has permanently installed a painted piano, which is functional and available for anyone who wants to play it.
