Frank B

Born (1960) in Milan, Italy. Franko B moved to London in 1979, integrating himself into the anarcho-punk scene. He began performing in nightclubs and, by way of his blood performances, was later responsible for bringing subversive body art into the leading art institutions on an international scale. A pioneering artist, Franko B uses his body as a tool to explore the themes of the personal, poetic, resistance, suffering and the reminder of our own morality, his work responds to contemporary politics through the lens of the vulnerable individual. His practice spans drawing, installation, performance, sculpture, curating, teaching, mentoring and DJing.
