Frank Moore artworks and editions
Frank C. Moore was an American artist and AIDS activist. Moore was instrumental in the Red Ribbon Project, which became a symbol of solidarity with people living with HIV and AIDS worldwide. Moore was born in Manhattan in 1953 and grew up on Long Island. He studied psychology and art at Yale University.
Moore is known for his large-scale, hyper-realistic paintings. After the artist was diagnosed with HIV in 1985, the American increasingly dealt with issues such as homosexuality, AIDS and environmental protection. His works are closely related to surrealist approaches that understand the subconscious and dreams as inspiration for works. His artworks and editions show both figurative and landscape representations, worked in color. In addition to these works, the artist also created stage designs and costumes and worked closely with important choreographers and ballet companies.
On April 21, 2002, the painter died at the age of 48 as a result of AIDS. His sister established the Gesso Foundation after his death. Moore's artworks and editions have been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
