Frank Elgar

Born in Sydney in 1942

Frank has been involved in Sydney's art world for many years.

He studied Design at the National Art School in the early 1960's and was involved in the Yellow House in the early 1970's. At that time Frank partnered Sydney artist, Mary Shackman, in setting up one of Australia's first nation-wide craft based business "Printed Materials", and was involved in Performance..

Frank's career has evolved around many design-based undertakings including Fashion and Fine Art Dealing. In the past decade urban renewal projects including the design and set up of Street Markets as part of the special urban environments for Oxford Street Paddington, Sydney's Rocks precinct, the Colonades at East Circular Quay and Fox Studios have been under taken. Such projects where social cultural and economic factors are married to design, art and performance are the current inspiration.
