Ask Francis Crosby to choose a colour and he will say “grey!”. So we gave him grey, until we discovered that he calls all colours grey. We now ask, “which grey Francis?”, to which he replies by pointing to the colour of his choice and saying “this grey”.
Francis draws letters creating poetic patterns rather than a language that communicates thought.
Scale is no issue for him, creating work that range from miniature scripts to 6 meter long scrolls. Give him a spay can and he would happily graffiti the entire city.
His work has been used for graphic design purposes in a government policy document.
