Frank Ape is a Sasquatch who lives in New York City among the
humans and is the creation of artist Brandon Sines. Frank can be seen
all over the city on any given day and has been spotted on streets and
in homes around the world. He embodies positivity and equality, and
cares about all living things. Frank believes in "creating your own
universe" and inspiring people and animals every day. Shortly after
moving to New York City in 2010, Sines combined his use of mythological
creatures, pop icons, and made up characters into a new character called
Frank. Frank is an "ape" that often takes the form of a cartoon, but
is no doubt a reference to Sines himself. Frank explores human
conditions without human restrictions. The birth of Frank and
the move to New York City was a pivotal time for Sines. His inspiration
soared from the constant stimulus of the city. He began installing Frank
around the city, and Frank became an instant street art favorite most
likely due to Sines' special gift of empathy. With Frank, he had found a
way to bring the autobiographical undertones in his work to the surface
with a playful character who was instantly accessible to people of all
ages and backgrounds. Much like New York enables both anonymity and
stardom simultaneously, Frank gave Sines the ability to be invisible yet
fully present in his work. This added a deeper sincerity to his
paintings, and thus a deeper connection to viewers.
