Martigues (13), France
Frank alias Zen Portraitiste is a contemporary visual artist born in Marseille in 1978, Self-taught, Zen cut his teeth in graffiti in the early 90s. Carried away by the first wave of graffiti artists including his two great cousins, Zen will be an actor and witness of this revolution.
Eternal fan of Music and Cinema, he will develop, from 2010 to 2019, a magnificent series of portraits in earthenware marquetry .. Exceptional technique that he is the only one to master to this day.
In 2020, Zen will have the chance and the opportunity to be a resident artist in the premises of Provence Studios in Martigues. His studio and his new working conditions will allow him to develop a new series of portraits in glass painting, inspired by multiple influences such as chiaroscuro, abstract pointillism and the optical art that he is particularly fond of.
