Artist statement:

"I lean towards photorealism, sometimes with a splash of painterly graff style marks. My latest piece at Panns Bank incorporates anamorphic elements. Not tying myself down to one particular style, I like to experiment and try new things. I've been drawing calligraphy for a little while now, now trying calligraffiti, that is taking the calligraphy to the wall. I'm also keen to take my portraits further and try out some anamorphic floor pieces."

Current Project:

Presently working on ideas for a large scale project... That's all I can say at this stage!

As well as painting commissions, Frank also arranges walls for other artists to paint. A good example of this was UpNorthFest in 2013 that saw 50 artists come to Sunniside, Sunderland to paint walls that are still there now.
