Franko B has been creating work across video, photography, performance, painting, installation, sculpture and mixed media since 1990. His latest body of work, 'I STILL LOVE', is a heartbreaking series of larger-than-life images hand-stitched onto canvas with red yarn. A departure from the performative works he is so well known for, these works introduce a more playful, erotic imagery into the artist's oeuvre. Of the work, Franko writes: "I don't want to work with images that repulse me" - "but with images that I can't forget - that are ingrained in my memory."
