About the Artist
Original from Belgium, Frans Frengen is one of the most genuine contemporary artists to emerge on the scene, developing a work process that is as intriguing as his artwork. Frengen studied painting and drawing under prominent artists for some years before acquiring the signature “Fumagine” technique that forms the basis for much of his work.
Despite the bold, thick lines, smudgy appearance, and simple nature of Frengen’s drawings and paintings, they are still highly detailed and reveal the artist’s deep level of skill and technique.
It may still be decades before our world comes together in peace to face the obstacles facing our species and our planet. When we are striving for unity, artists like Frans Frengen are opening doors to critical conversations. Inspiring people from all over the globe to ask more questions about challenging topics. Questions like, what can we do to make a difference? To bring awareness to global problems, share support for environmental conservation, and share a vision of the beauty that truly comes from ashes.
