Brandon Sines [creator of Frank Ape] [b.1986]
Brandon Sines work has reached an international audience with his original character Frank Ape. Over the past two years Sines was awarded a 100 foot two dimensional installation at the World Trade Center, hand painted murals around NYC, and was featured on Link NYC’s digital Kiosks as part of #ArtOnLink. Sines’ work was featured last year on the Guggenheim Museum’s digital platforms as part of the Guggenheim’s official 60th Anniversary.
Shortly after moving to New York City in 2010, Sines combined his use of mythological creatures, pop icons, and made up characters into a completely new character called Frank Ape. Frank Ape is a mystical creature who lives in New York City amongst the humans but without human restrictions. Frank has special powers, that even he continues to discover as he is tested by the many challenges of life. Frank embodies positivity and equality, and cares about all living things.”
