François Morelli is a Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist holding a BFA from Concordia University (1975) and a Masters of Fine Arts from Rutgers University, New Jersey. From 1981 to 1991, he lived and taught in New York where he created several graphic and sculptural installations, as well as other art practices that led him across North America, Europe and North Africa.
François Morelli pursues a trans-disciplinary practice in drawing, installation, performance, print media and sculpture that questions the status of artworks through their creative process and reception. Interested in notions of passage, circulation and transformation, his art often echoes past actions or events while examining relationships between artist and society, connecting individuals or relating the individual and the artwork.
