Frank Stella (born 1936) is an American Minimalist artist whose revolutionary approach to materials has shaped our understanding of the practices of painting, print-making, and artistry. After moving to New York in 1958, Stella created his seminal series, The Black Paintings (1958-60), which expressed controlled minimalism. Later, the artist subverted this with maximalist riots of color, exploring the dialogue of material, form, and geometry from a different angle.

Stella's elevation beyond the conventional rules of art-making, coupled with his collaboration with Kenneth Tyler beginning in 1967, resulted in a restlessly imaginative portfolio of prints. This shifted the medium from a mere reproduction technique to an artistic practice in its own right. Stella's remarkable contributions have shaped the Prints & Editions market as we recognize it today. Noteworthy public collections that include Stella's works are the Tate in London, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., the National Gallery of Art in the UK, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
