Frank To Artist

I would probably treat this as my secret blog to show my development and journey as a full time working fine artist.

These are paintings by Frank To (one of Sir Patrick’s favorite artists), who has just finished a new project that apparently includes these awesome pieces of work.

To guide my progress in my figurative work, I sometimes make a small wax model of the figure and sub- merge it in water dyed with black ink. Day by day I let the water level drop and what I see emerging from the water is the figure which I ‘carve’ out carefully in the painting.

This technique is by the Renaissance sculptor, Michelangelo, which he used to make his piece, David in the 16th century.

Been working on this private commission for the past couple of months. So glad that the client loves it and given his approval.
Difficult because the human figure is from my imagination; basically seeing it and painting it from my mind.

As in some cases, I sometimes put hidden images or messages in my work.

In the recent body of work inspired by Da Vinci’s drawings, I intergrated an image which would only be visable when all the paintings are joined in a specific sequence.

The image formed is King Solomon’s Knot; the symbol of immortality and eternity.

The idea was actually inspired by Da Vinci’s Demons with the episodes The Serpent where there was a hidden map within the Jew’s book and The Lovers where King Solomon’s Knot is engraved on the Medicis’ tomb.

A recent commission completed.

A monoprint commissioned by a private client. She wanted something that was quite similar to Da Vinci’s style of drawings (in this case skulls), and incoporate mirror writing; writing in reverse that can only be read with a mirror.

Commission was through my professional Facebook Artist Page.

Sometimes I do despair at the number of artists doing limited edition Giclée prints (eg limited edition of 50 or 100 etc). Artist proofs are fine as they fetch more money and value. In the past I have been asked by various clients if I could let them buy the artist proof Giclée prints of my work which I sometimes agree to.

What I tend to do is that I make fine art printmaking pieces of my work. Traditional print making usually means etching, monoprinting, screenprinting etc.

Here I’m doing a monoprint of one of my recent Da Vinci influenced pieces. Basically what I have done is drawn the image on the ink-cover glass slab and transferred it to printmaking paper (special kind of printing paper that holds ink alot stronger without any ‘bleeds’).
