About the Art

I experienced a very conservative upbringing in Johannesburg, South Africa. But some of my most distinctive earliest memories were of my glamorous aunts and cousins who were the antithesis of my own surroundings. They were beautiful socialites, always dressing up and going to balls. I would watch them get ready, enchanted by their magnificence. This very voyeuristic act was in staunch contrast to my puritanical upbringing and it influenced my whole life. My work centers around escapism, fantasy and glamour. I strive to recreate the magical world of beauty and desire that I experienced as a child.

Since becoming a father my work has evolved to encompass and explore this new life experience. Observing the relationships between my wife and children has changed my vision.. It is based in reality, as opposed to my works of fantasy, but for me just as enchanting.

Artful photographic prints are produced to the highest standard, using Giclee printing on 300 gsm 100% cotton rag fine art paper. This method, accepted by the art world for fine art reproduction, produces a high quality, archival grade digital print. The archival quality of the pigment ink with 100% cotton rag minimises the chemical reaction leading to image fading.

Because Giclee is widely regarded as one of the very best photographic and fine art printing methods it has become extremely popular with artists and photographers displaying their images in art galleries, museums and exhibitions.

Artful is proud to offer a high quality framing service that perfectly compliments the artwork. Using conservation quality wood mouldings, our handmade frames are built for each individual print and arrive ready to hang. The archival quality mount is acid free and pH neutral, so you can be confident your print is well protected.

Artful’s framing service is not only competitively priced but of the highest quality. If you have any requests for further framing options, get in touch.

Artful uses UPS for its UK and international shipping since they’re quick, trustworthy and affordable.

As soon as your artwork is ready to be dispatched, we’ll notify you with the shipping details and tracking number. For UK delivery, shipping is ‘Next Working Day’ but for international, it will take a small while longer.

As you'd expect, all artworks are packed with the utmost care to ensure they reach you safely, but If there is any problem with how an item has arrived we will address the issue immediately.

About the Artist

Artists - Frank Herholdt

Frank grew up in South Africa where he studied fine art at the Johannesburg School of Art. While assisting the photographer Art Kane who was doing portraits of film stars on the set of a major film production he met the lighting cameraman Vilmos Zsigmond. Observing Zsigmond’s film lighting techniques radically influenced Frank.

He immediately started shooting tests using movie lighting techniques. Soon his new work started winning him awards and notice. His photography became known for its impeccably executed cinematic quality, as if the viewer has just walked into a movie.

But Frank’s work is about more than a look. His compositions have a narrative quality that is suggestive and enigmatic. Works like Seaview House and Evening #1 become beautiful riddles that are captivating, puzzling and, like much of his work, seductive.

Frank has won numerous international prizes, including awards from the NewYork Art Directors Club, the AOP, Communication Arts, London Photographic Awards and B&W Spider Awards.
