Frank Bowling, along with seven other leading international artists, were asked to create a print to celebrate Tate Modern’s 21st anniversary. A third of the profits from the sale of each print will benefit Tate.
Over the course of six decades, Frank Bowling has relentlessly pursued a practice which boldly expands the possibilities and properties of paint. Ambitious in scale and scope, his dynamic engagement with the materiality of his chosen medium, and its evolution in the broad sweep of art history, has resulted in paintings of unparalleled originality and power. 'As If Eleven' (2020) like many of Bowling's paintings, builds layer upon layer of colour onto the paper's surface.
Born in Guyana (then British Guiana) in 1934, Frank Bowling moved to London aged 19. He went on to study painting at the Royal College of Art alongside David Hockney and R.B. Kitaj. It was during this time that he also became friends with Peter Blake.
After graduating with a silver medal, he spent the next 60 years criss-crossing the Atlantic between studios in London and New York. Maturing into a master of his medium, he developed a visionary approach that fuses abstraction with personal memories. Now 86 he still paints every day, experimenting with new materials and techniques.
Frank Bowling exhibits in Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States. His works are included in important private and corporate collections worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Tate Gallery in London where he has had a major retrospective.
