My paintings arise from a longstanding interest in the British urban landscape. I think that unpopular features like concrete and decay are often beautiful, despite representing modern malaise. I tend to avoid recognised attractions, seeking out the views which more reflect my spirit.

Growing up in Yorkshire, I began taking photographs of the surrounding countryside aged 12, moving on to cityscapes in my mid teens. After settling in Bristol to study at the university, I explored some of the city’s less cherished spots, using the resultant photos as the basis for my first acrylic on canvas paintings in 1994. I am entirely self taught.

It’s highly gratifying to see that there still exist artists such as Frank Kortan, who have tasted from the elixir of Emperor Rudolph II and, in the spirit of the noble art of Mannerism, keep presenting its mastery to our contemporaries’ eyes; the mastery that had already seemed extinct but that is essential to create magnificent paintings in the style of the old masters. May his works open the eyes of all those who have become blind through pointless art so that they are able to understand the language of paintings again.
