Southside-based artist Frank To and his innovative gunpowder art technique has yet again caused an explosion of success.

He is one of seven Scottish artists this year whose work has been officially selected by the Royal Society of British Artists out of 1800 entries this year.

He will be representing Glasgow in the exhibition. Furthermore, To has been elected as Professional Artist Member in the prestigious Society of Scottish Artists.

Frank To is a Southside Glasgow-based artist whose unique artwork is garnering him international recognition as a leading contemporary artist amongst art critics and high-profile collectors alike, including actor Sir Patrick Stewart and New York based Michel Witmer, who hangs To’s paintings alongside those of Picasso, Dine and Warhol.

Frank said: “I am delighted to be accepted in the Royal Society of British Artists exhibition and elected as Professional Artist Member of the SSA.

“I am humbled for these opportunities especially after exhibiting at the Royal Scottish Academy, Royal West of England Academy, Royal Ulster Academy and Royal Cambrian Academy in a short period of time.”

Frank To will show in the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition alongside chosen Scottish artists Georgina Bown, Joyce W Cairns, Deborah Cruden, Jim Fogarty, Jenny Handley and Teresa Hunyadi at the Mall Galleries, Federation of British Artists, London, from July 4-14.
