Frank Levine was born in England during the second world war. He attended Saint Martin’s School of Art and had a career in fashion design in London in the 1960s. In the late 1970s he emigrated to Canada with his immediate family and lived in Richmond for many years before retreating to the Sunshine Coast for a couple of decades. He then returned to Richmond where he lives today. His paintings are influenced by early 20th century modernists Klimt and Mondrian and merge impressionistic imagery with geometrical abstraction. His fashion designs have been featured in boutiques and national stores in the UK. His paintings have been exhibited at the Coastal Art Gallery in Sechelt, at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery, and at the Richmond Community Centre and at the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery in Vancouver among others.
