Artist of the Week: Frank Malafronte

Frank Malafronte is UGallery’s Artist of the Week. Every Monday, we announce our Artist of the Week on our Instagram feed and give the artist access to our Artist of the Week Pinterest board, so that they can show us their inspirations. Frank Malafronte has taken over and proven he is not only a master painter, but also a professional pinner. See how Frank uses Pinterest for inspiration below:

“When thinking about what the next painting will be, I honestly spend a ton of time on Pinterest browsing through images. I really look for in all of those images is the play of color. I categorize the most inspiring images into my "boards” so I know what type of painting they actually might inspire.

TCUANKAE became the inspiration for one of my paintings because I thought the colors would make an awesome painting and I wanted to divert from my normal Wanderlust theme for a moment and play around with forging some new techniques. That’s why this painting is so dramatically different than the rest of my recent work.“

Well we hope you keep on pinning and keeping on painting! Thanks for sharing, Frank.
