We're big fans of Frank Stella at Boomerang. Celebrated as one of the greatest living American artists, he has continued to reinvent himself over decades, captivating audiences with his daring innovations and monumental hybrid painting-sculptures.

Throughout his five-decade career, Stella has tirelessly experimented with scale, colour, depth, texture, and material to create his iconic works. Catapulted into the spotlight during the early 1960s for his minimalist Black Paintings, he went on to expand the aesthetic to focus on more radical forms.
