Frank Bowling, who currently divides his time between London and New York, was born on 29th February 1935 in British Guyana and came to England in 1950. He was the first black artist to be elected to the Royal Academy, London, and he was honoured in 2008 with the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.) for his service to art. In 2012, he was included in an important group exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and featured in a solo display at the Tate Britain, London.

"Bowling’s method consists of working on unstretched canvas, which he often cuts or reassembles, stapling and gluing parts together. At times, he folds and rolls up a work to be finished at a later time in a different place, encompassing the theme of temporality.  Receptive to new methods, he has developed many ways of pouring paint, including the use of a tilting board platform controlled by pegs, which enable him to determine the velocity of the paint’s downward movement."
