Because of Love: Franko B’s Story

‘I wanted to tell my story, or more like try to make sense of what my story was, or what I thought it was.’ Franko B

Franko B is an extraordinary, internationally acclaimed artist who has been making drawings, installations, sculptures, and performances for over 30 years. Because of Love tells the story of his childhood in Italy in an orphanage and at the hands of his abusive family, his journey to London as a young man, his return to Italy many years later as an accomplished artist, and, in between, the story of his life and loves and his becoming an artist.
