Jan Frank (b. Amsterdam) is a contemporary American painter who lives and works in New York City. Throughout his career, Frank’s work has reflected an investigation and appropriation of the line most commonly associated with the traditions of abstract expressionism.

His drawings and paintings recall the organic, winding lines used by Willem de Kooning in his representation of fragmented figures, while congruently addressing the early influence of Piet Mondrian by expressing the value of positive and negative space.

In 2011,
Art in America proclaimed Frank’s show at Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York third on its list of top 10 painting exhibitions that year. Jan Frank has received numerous awards and his work can be found in major collections (both public and private) around the world.
