Frank Strunk III grew up in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Raised by Appalachian parents, he was strongly influenced by Baptist philosophy, physical work and love of music. As an introverted child, he worked in his father’s printing business, first sweeping up and eventually running off-set presses. He was mesmerized by the sound, look and movement of printing presses: the gears, the grease and the sheer magic of machinery.
Frank’s body of work explores the themes evoked in the work of Eckerd Tolle, Eric Hoffer, Joseph Campbell and Sam Keen. He strives to create a space where the viewer can explore their own belief structures around gender roles, work, love and the soul.
