Frankey’s art is all about surprise and engagement. You might walk past a familiar street corner one day, only to find Snow White perched on an Apple sign the next. Or perhaps you’ll see beloved cartoon characters cleverly holding street signs or whimsical figures playfully interacting with lampposts. His creations are designed to catch you off guard, making you stop, smile, and appreciate the mundane in a new, imaginative light.
