SULLY, Frank

Frank Sully - Song of Liberation

Artist Biography


Frank Sully was born in London to a family of picture framers and studied at Hammersmith School of Art, then later at the Academie Julian in Paris. He spent a few years in Cornwall, to where the family framing company had moved, but from 1923 West Hampstead in London became his base.

Sully began as a conventional painter working in an impressionist style but, influenced by Naum Gabo and Russian Constructivism and rather a rarity in Britain, he turned to constructivist abstraction in the late 1940s. He exhibited in 1927 at a mixed show of British artists at Manchester Art Gallery and was a member of the New English Art Club in London. A retrospective of Sully’s work was held in 2010 Artroom Gallery, Parkgate in the Wirral.
