NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — New York, NY – Painting can be a relaxing hobby for many people, but for others who are so inexplicably talented, it becomes a lifelong rewarding career that brings world-wide recognition and honor.
Frank Mann is a renowned painter and founder of Frank Mann Studio with locations in Midtown Manhattan by Kips Bay and the Hudson Valley Region of New York.
“I’m primarily a painter but I do prints and drawings as well,” says Mann. “My work appears abstract but it’s based on my interest in visual perception. At times the paintings are very large while some of the drawings and prints are smaller. The primary impulse is to work from the inside out so I’m not working from the world of nature but more from the imagination.”
Mann says he had an innate desire from a very young age to become an artist.
“Art is life affirming and incredibly inspiring,” says Mann. “As a working artist it’s immensely gratifying to see your vision actualized where other people can appreciate it. Some of my works are more developed than others, while still others are an approximation or a fragment of the overall complexity of the range of the work.”
For many years, Mann has had exhibitions in Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, London, and Berlin, and participated in international exhibitions and biennials in Europe. He has been bestowed with numerous prestigious awards, including an International medal in 2001, a Sandro Botticelli from a prominent magazine in Rome, and an International Human Rights award from the Italian Academy of Art of the World. In 2017, Mann was inducted into the Albert Nelson Marquis Worldwide Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of outstanding achievement.
“I have been involved with aspects of color and form that incorporate a conception of color as light,” explains Mann. "Vision is based on light, and I rely heavily on procedures that I know through experience, give freedom to the course of the imagination."
Mann’s distinguished work has also been included in books and publications throughout numerous countries including Italy, the U.K., Portugal, Germany, and Austria.
“The pursuit of the artist is inevitably a calling rather than a personal choice,” says Mann. “A good life comes from using talents wisely and pursing a life of meaning. It’s tremendously satisfying when people appreciate your work. I have been extremely fortunate. It’s been a magnificent life.”
