Joshua Frankel is an animator, filmmaker and visual artist, grew up in the Hell’s Kitchen section of New York City in a building filled with musicians, actors and dancers. Originally trained in painting and drawing, Frankel began creating in 2001 animation and visual effects, mostly for TV commercials, and has been working in a variety of media, attempting to use the powers he has acquired in advertising for good, rather than evil. Frankel has collaborated with his wife, Eve Biddle, to create a series of enormous murals in New York City, Philadelphia and Indianapolis that implant a sense of boyish wonder onto massive walls in public spaces using subject matter ranging from jellyfish to rockets. Frankel’s work has shown in galleries and festivals around the world. Please visit artist’s website or follow his Tumblr for more work.
