ARTHUR FRANCIETTA — 11.08.1990
Graphic Designer / Artist
Strongly anchored in the Caribbean universe, Arthur Francietta has started for a few years a research on the vernacular scriptures of this part of the world. Following his residency at the National Typographic Research Workshop (ANRT, Nancy) in 2018, Arthur Francietta wonders about the graphic phenomenon that precedes the invention of writing. Very quickly confronted with the omnipresence of the Latin alphabetic system, he focused his research on graphic systems: Anaforuana in Cuba, Vévé in Haiti, or the Native American petroglyphs still visible to this day.
