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.
If I'm not creating prints, I'm working on illustrations, graphic design, or practicing 3D renderings and animations. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me here using the Contact Page or send me a DM on Instagram or Twitter, @iRollBrayers!
