So, come by the shop to check out these truly unique and beautiful portraits of some of the music industry’s most famous people.
Hailing from Ardmore PA, Francis2Good, born Frank Kolbmann, was an artist from day one and he has not looked back since. Frank has always had a passion for creating art. That passion all stems back to a childhood of doodling cartoon characters in school notebooks. Throughout his life, art has been his one and only true passion. In looking back and experiencing a whirlwind of ups and downs, Frank has developed as an artist, as well as a person. While attending the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, he has met and learned from a lot of great artists along the way.
His inspirations come from, though not limited to, his family, close friends, and through supporting local musicians and artists, who are close friends of ours as well. He finds inspiration in everyday life. These days Frank finds inspiration in the folk movement that is currently sweeping the Philadelphia music scene and in the music that embodies this movement. Watching, listening, and supporting local musicians has greatly inspired him to pursue his dreams. Working hard at what he loves in life and creating beautiful paintings for the enjoyment of all is his passion.
Though we only have a small sample of his artwork and that artwork focuses on a certain style, Frank loves and incorporates all styles into his work. The two styles that have stood out to him are that of the Post-Impressionism age and Pop Art. Vincent Van Gogh has had the most impact on his life and influence, though Andy Warhol of the Pop Art genre is followed closely behind Van Gogh. Franks’ own style is a good representational mixture of his artistic influences.
The collection shown in the photos below is a very small sample of what Artwork by Francis2Good has to offer. With many other paintings, drawings, murals, acrylics, iconic portraits, and even live paintings, it seems he can do just about anything. Not limiting to the music and entertainment scene, his subjects expand to include landscapes, historical figures, historical depictions, and personal commissioned pieces. His artwork has even reached the walls of famed boxer, Mike Tyson. More on that story and on his other work can be found by clicking this article. In addition to the canvases he paints, he offers his artwork in many different forms. From larger canvases to smaller prints, to T-Shirts, he has even printed his work on lighters and on the backs of skateboards.
