Frank Morrison

Frank Morrison was born in Massachusetts and then moved to New Jersey.  He grew up during the early days of rap music, graffiti and break dancing. He was a well-known graffiti artist and an accomplished break dancer who was part of the Sugar Hill Gang's dance entourage. It was during one of the group’s European tours he got a chance to visit the Louvre in Paris and was so intrigued by the magnificent art that he decided, at that moment, to return to his roots and become an artist. 

 

Frank today enjoys the attention of art galleries nationwide, and is the recipient of a Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Illustrator Award for Jazzy Miz Mozetta by Brenda C. Roberts. The artist, who works in watercolor and acrylic, makes his home in Georgia with his wife, three sons, and daughter.
