Franko B

  • Performance artist
  • Uses his blood frequently in his work.
  • “Oh Lover Boy” (2001-2005) http://www.franko-b.com/Oh_Lover_Boy.html
  • He is one of the more literal artists when it comes to putting the body on edge. He literally leaks out his blood in a lot of his work, as an idea of cleansing and loss of identity.
  • His issues tackle gay rights quite frequently, but more so in his sculptural work
  • There is also a great deal of personal opinions and thoughts behind his work, its not always designed to make a huge statement
  • Franko-B was a Favorite artist of mine previous to this module and his work greatly influences my own in style. this pushing the body to the edge.
