“Disturbing and poetic, Fulvio Leoncini’s pictorial world involves the viewer, brings out deep emotions. Few other artists of our time are capable of bringing out the ambiguous fascination of our ancestral fears, our hidden desires.”
Gustave Leduc, Paris, 2014

"Fulvio Leoncini is a surgeon of the material: the body of his paintings has been battered make the soul emerge from it, screaming. His art is profoundly significant. The materials he uses, burnings, wood, wax and colour, and the skillful composition of strokes, shapes, place the paintings in the highest region of the visual art of today. Every scratch, every figure is necessary, as were the gold and lapislazuli in Renaissance frescoes.”

    Antonio Bobò, In nomine Domini, Pisa 2009
