Frank ToBiography: Born in Glasgow 1982, Frank To graduated from the University of Huddersfield with BA (Hons) Fine Art. He went on to gain a Masters of Fine Art from Duncan of Jordanstone Art College. To works from his studio in Glasgow. To has created paintings inspired by a story attributed to the Renaissance sculptor, Michelangelo. It was said Michelangelo could visualise the human form within a block of marble. F. To, similarly, teases out figures from initially abstract images. It means he works in two distinct ways on a painting: first, he uses broad, sweeping strokes to create the abstract starting point. Then he uses much more precise brushwork to turn the abstract into some much more figurative. This shows great playfulness, skill and maturity with paint.
