Frank Morrison was born in Massachusetts and later moved to New Jersey where he was inspired by local D.J’s and colorful ‘tags’ splashed across the neighborhood. His own eye for colorful ‘tags’ brought him considerable ‘street recognition’ and local acclaim. He soon became a “B” boy–break-dancer, touring the US and Europe. It was at the Louvre Museum in Paris that he “met his muse” and returned to New York with a renewed vision and an informed eye. Frank developed an expressive style of his own. His initiatives include publication of over 20 illustrated children’s books. His power and inspiration are products of his deeply religious grounding and his loving commitment to his family. Each of his paintings bears his signature, of course, accompanied by the notation “TTG” representing and reminding all of his “Thanks To God” for the blessings of his gifts–his family and his talents.
