Frank is the youngest of renown Canadian artist Tom Forrestall’s celebrated family of artists. In a family recognized for its diverse creative directions Frank’s figurative work melds elements of Surrealism, Classical and Pop Art. His work is informed by his struggle in recovering from personal mental health crisis. In 2016 Frank ended his 20 year career as a Visual Effects and Animation Artist and began to pursue his painting full time. Rife with symbolism drawn from world mythology, folklore, mysticism and pop-culture, Frank’s paintings emerge as deeply personal essays drawing parallels between individual mental health and broader social mores. His work functions as a form of catharsis, as much for himself as the viewer.
