Biography   



Born in 1936 in Malden, Massachusetts, USA, Frank Stella lives and works in New York. Initially influenced by abstract expressionism, he eventually renounced lyrical abstraction. He was one of the key figures in 1960s minimalist painting, an artist devoted to the relationships between form and colour. Stella was a pioneer of the shaped canvas, whose forms departed from conventional configurations. The three dimensional nature of his paintings led him to begin creating sculptures in the 1980s.
