We've seen the art of multiple celebrated Cuban artists at Frames and Stretchers this month. Hector Frank is one of those artists. In preparation for his show this Thursday at Bryant Toth Fine Art we want to highlight and share the works that we stretched for him.

Hector Frank is a celebrated Cuban artist who began his career as an engineer before deciding to become an artist full time. It paid off for him. During his first solo show he sold out of all his pieces on the first day! His artwork is vibrant, colorful, and visually textured. Through his work he displays the liveliness of Cuban life. Currently, Frank lives and works in Havana and has an established following within the Havana creative scene as well as world wide. He has exhibited his work internationally in Mexico, Cuba, France, Belgium, Malaysia, and several times throughout the United States.

Frank's work often includes outlines of human faces, acrylic on canvas or acrylic on wood. He is inspired by human behaviors and emotions. Through his artwork, he intends for his characters to capture the unspoken words, feelings and behaviors that are present in everyday interactions.
