Augustus Francis

Augustus Francis is inspired by natural and urban landscapes, the ongoing struggle, yet also harmonious coexistence between nature and manmade environments. He is an abstract painter—color is at the heart of his work. He manipulates color understanding how each hue reacts to another to reach an impact in the senses.


For the artist, movement is a way of controlling rhythm and in turn balance and force. Movement can be at the source of the paintings structure, before the process begins, or may take hold as the painting forms. Francis attempts to evoke the sensation of the sublime, “I paint what I cannot see, I paint speed, I paint Rhythm, I paint Time, I paint Gravity, I paint Movement, I paint the immaterial not the material.”


Francis studied art in the United Kingdom and ever since has been exhibited solo and group shows around the world. This includes shows in Santa Monica, CA, Munich, Germany, Tokyo, Japan, London, UK, and Houston, Texas.
