‘Helena Frank Studio’ is a Danish brand established in late 2015, by Swedish illustrator and designer Helena Frank. From her studio in Copenhagen she illustrates her art prints and work on commission.
With her unique personal expression, she creates art prints made from original pencil drawings, which are sold through her webshop and all over the world in some of the best design stores.
Her brand consists of an ever-expanding collection of illustrated products, which are divided into two different series: ’Frank Animal’, which is the playful and humoristic one, and ‘Frank Minimal’, which is based on geometric shapes, clean composition and Nordic minimalism.
Frank works with a traditional hand-drawn pencil technique. With muted colour palettes and firm attention to detail, her imaginative illustrations always remain grounded in reality. Helena’s work is tender, playful as well as being unusual, and at times surreal. Her wish is to shine some light on the oddity of the everyday and to create playful aesthetic art that will sit happily in any space in your home - be it your child's room or your own.
‘All my products are drawn by hand. After hours of drawing, the illustration is scanned and then printed on the finest high quality art paper.’
Through the years, she has created a signature style with her pencil drawings creating an unusual and atmospheric universe, filled with architecture, humans, animals and unexpected scenes always represented with a delicate hand and a hyper realistic technique.
Helena Frank has studied at Konstfack (University college of Art, Crafts and Design) in Sweden, and the National Film School of Denmark, from where she graduated as Animation Director in 2010. After wandering for some time in the wilderness that is life after graduation she found her true calling as an illustrator and haven't looked back since. In the winter of 2015 she established ‘Helena Frank Studio’.
All products in this webshop are manufactured in Copenhagen, Denmark. Helena is constantly working on new illustrated products, which will be available to buy here online soon so watch this space!
