Robert `Ferd' Frank, a St. Louis area self-taught artist and former bass player with Johnny Cougar (Mellencamp), has been shooting photographs and painting for nine years. As an art photographer and painter, Ferd strives to show beauty in the common things we see everyday. Much of his work depicts old and abandoned structures, bridges, water, and the unique character of common everyday people. His painting techniques were developed by painting art cars. His photography began with the introduction of the digital age that evolved by 2005 into an obsession with the camera. Ferd's early years as an artist were focused mainly on music. While playing trumpet during high school, his interests were captured by rock and roll after the English invasion of the Stones and Beatles. He played with a local band, the Aerovons, recording an album at Abbey Road in 1969. In the mid 70's, Ferd joined Johnny Cougar to record four albums as his bass player. Today, he feels fortunate to be sur rounded and influenced by many talented local artists.
