Visual Artist Frank Bonillawww.ArtPal.com/VAFB
I have loved abstract art since I was in high school. I think I liked abstract art, due to the fact that I couldn't draw nice body figures, or paint beautiful painting. I only had one choice, be an individual, and create my own art!
Next I discovered photography classes in junior college.
The years passed by, and along came computers, and the digital age! I combined my three hobbies of abstract art, photography, and digital cameras to create digital abstract art. This is my big area of enjoyment. I do take other images, of landscapes, nature,and just about anything else my eye catches. I see many great artists and photographers here on FFA, and other websites. I consider it an honor to be among these people, and have them look at my art.
I like to call myself Visual Artist Frank Bonilla, and I live in Clovis, California. I hope you enjoy my images.
Please view my blog, for more information on some of my images chosen for hotels, paperbacks, and magazines.
Note to buyers: All of my abstract art, and all other images are of a digital medium. My digital images may be purchased as a print, or canvas, metal print, and more. My favorite for all of my images is the metal print. I think it gives the colors a more vibrant look, and recommend you purchase it for my art.
My first image to be actually used by someone else. Writer Douglas Eby used my image, "Digital Color Wheel", for his paperback titled Developing Multiple Talents, the personal side of creative expression. It was written in 2011, and is available on Ebay, and Amazon, as a paperback. There is also Kindle edition available. The paperback edition runs $10-12. Click below to see the paperback edition on Amazon. Thanks for viewing.
My image "Tornado From Above" is a black and white image I created digitally, and looks somewhat like a tornado. I was contacted by a curator from Kalisher.com . They supply art to hotels, and other companies. They paid me for the right to use my image to decorate the Renaissance Waterford Oklahoma City Hotel, of course in Oklahoma. They used my image as a wall mural in 192 of their rooms! You can see one view of my art in the image to the left. The money was not even important. That idea of my art on all the walls of all those rooms is very exciting, and uplifting. I know I am very lucky to have my art chosen.
If you scroll thru the photos section of the link above, you can see other images of my art at the hotel.
My art was recently chosen to be on the cover of Computer.org.cga. Computer.org is the magazine of the IEEE. The IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. The IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its more than 420,000 members in over 160 countries, and its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.
Not only was my art chosen for the cover, an article was also written about me, and my art.
The article was written by Gary Singh, from San Jose, California. He viewed my art on Flickr, and here. He then recommended to the board of the IEEE, that my art be used for the cover, and article. This is not a magazine you buy at the local bookstore. It is for members of the IEEE, who are all professionals. I couldn't link the whole article to this site. However, if you click on the link below, you can at least see the title of the article. It is Without A Plan. It refers to how I create my. It is spontaneous, and by the moment.
This was quite an honor to have my art chosen for this worldwide publication.
Recently I submitted several images of "Suns" to CBS Sunday Morning. To my surprise, I received an email from Jennifer Frank, Associate Director/Sun Coordinator for CBS Sunday Morning. I have now had 4 images selected for the show,
