Frank E Hollywood is an Amsterdam artist who regularly appears in the Dutch media. Frank studied at the St. Joost where he early on sought the boundaries between free art and commercial work. He is not afraid of popular themes. Some people see his art as a mixture between Andy Warhol and Gustav Klimt. Symbolism and pop culture come together on Frank’s canvases. His work is exhibited in London, New York, Cape Town, Mexico City and of course his home base Amsterdam.
Frank’s art also often shows a tension between the future and the past. He does not create a romanticized picture of the past. On the contrary, he draws from the collective visual history to create a truly modern image. Frank’s work shows his future ideas about art. Nostalgic images are recycled, creating something modern and unique.
