Hello! My name is Frank Estrada. I am a printmaker, illustrator, graphic designer, animator, and 3D artist based in Mississippi. Originally a Memphis, TN native who moved to Oxford, MS in 2007 to attend the University of Mississippi. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Printmaking and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. I am currently earning a Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communication through the School of Journalism and New Media.
I fell in love with printmaking after taking my first-ever Intro to Printmaking course at the University of Mississippi. Printmaking has many processes and techniques, but I love creating in traditional relief. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others in the same area and with my surrounding communities. Much of my admiration for the process came from people I met within the printmaking community and from attending the Southern Graphics Council International.
My relief prints are composed of imagery from my Mexican heritage and Southern upbringing. I carve images out of both linoleum and woodblocks. They vary in size from 4x6 inches to 8x4 feet. I have displayed artwork throughout the country. My most recent exhibition was at the Mississippi Arts + Entertainment Experience (The MAX) in Meridian, MS, called Family Legacy.
