Paolo Perfranceschi underwent a purely technical training during his adolescence in order to develop his conception of space according to the rigour of the prospects of proto-Renaissance. The influence of "his first loves", Fra Angelico, Paolo Uccello and Piero della Francesca, is recurrent in his painting.
After revisiting classical painting, his style took an important turn: his fascination for the Buddhist pantheon and the great Asian decorative tradition decided him to undertake his first decorative experiments and rediscover traditional techniques of traditional painting (such as casein painting, egg tempera, oil painting) then to convert to the exclusive use of natural products ecological and solvent free.
His passion for David Lynch’s cinema, deeply pictorial in the structure of his shots, led him to revisit the work of Edward Hopper and especially Balthus. The solitude of the characters in space and the "suspension" of the figures (often frozen as worrying presences in the middle of the set) are the leitmotiv of his last paintings.
