About

Frank Arnold is thought by many to be one of the foremost abstract figurative painters and sculptors of our time. He is a living master whose work is considered to be both personal and universal. He divides his time between working studios in California, San Jose del Cabo and Mexico City. Arnold has exhibited his unique and expressive abstract-figurative style in multiple galleries and museums and is in numerous collections, worldwide. In addition to oil paintings and bronze sculpture, Arnold has produced two books, the first of which, Frank Arnold Speaks” is a bilingual, English and Spanish biography covering his upbringing by adoptive parents, and the impact his experiences have had on his artwork. His second book, “Your Creative Imagination Unlocked,” is a collaborative effort with noted depth psychologist, Dr. Jim Manganiello. It includes an exploration of his own creative process and several observations and hypotheses by Manganiello with regard to Arnold’s work as well as that of other noted abstract artists, Cy Twombly, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko and Banksy. This book delves into the deeper mind and how art can be a path to rediscovery of your creative imagination. The 30 inch tall rigid bronze figure appears wrapped and bound, almost pleading in stature, yet seems at one with its integral binding like an organic covering. The striations of the deep, ginger-bronze surface combined with smooth and stippled figuring seems to emit light rather than reflect. The artist’s signature “8” is set at the foot of the figure. Edition of 12. Thematic inspiration for many of Frank Arnold’s cast pieces is discovered through his work as an abstract figurative painter. The textures and finishes present a painterly effect, intentionally created by Arnold to compliment his oil on canvas paintings.
