About The Event
Join us First Friday, Nov. 3, 6 - 10 PM for the opening reception of "Blueprints: From Takeover to Makeover," a solo exhibition of works by conecutter and printmaker Frank Kwiatkowski. Artist in attendance.
On view Nov. 3 - 26.
Frank Kwiatkowski was born in Denver, Colorado on September 23, 1974. On October 3, 1982 he was hospitalized and diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. In august of 1999 he cut down his first traffic cone with the idea of using it for relief prints. The idea worked. Initially he used the exterior of the cone, but about three years later he realized the interior was much better.
In the summer of 2009, he started stapling prints on telephone poles. By 2011 he turned to wheatpasting prints. Mischievous in nature, he always was excited by the adrenaline that came with street art. His most repetitive themes are type 1 diabetes, needle use and gentrification. He has worked on films and graphic novels with plans to complete these projects in the future.
