About the Event
Join as we welcome artist Frank Getty to LaMantia Gallery Friday, October 6th, 5:30-7:30pm and Saturday, October 7th from 2:00 to 5:00pm.
Frank Getty was born in 1967 in Northern Germany. Frank showed a prodigious talent for painting as he was growing up. But his father urged him to learn a “normal“ profession and so he became a house-painter and decorator. He specialized in large-scale murals and commissioned paintings, but it wasn’t until he spent time in New York and London that he chose to become a professional full-time artist. Frank specialized in the palette knife work and impasto style he developed in his decorating days. The vibrancy of his palette and strong textural approach using a palette knife, give his paintings a particular flair that is completely unique in the field of contemporary art. At once, Getty continues the legacy of impressionist painting, and brings his work into modern age. His grand, dynamic, architectural cityscape and harbor scenes are collected throughout Europe and the United States. With a bold and confident technique, Frank Getty is being described as a powerful force among palette knife artists. He has built a reputation for his expressive portrayals of well-known locations including Venice and New York. His work has been recognized in a number of exhibitions from New York to Sydney and enjoys a growing collective of serious collectors.
