His ‘Marble’ Highness

Born in 1980, in Utrecht, Dutch artist Frank E. Hollywood always knows how to suprise. Based in Amsterdam His works explore the tensions between the past, present and future. Not interested in simply reimagining the past, Frank draws on a collective visual memory of the past, to present us with something truly new and exceptional. Not limited to one specific medium or technique, his body of works range from oil paintings to marble sculptures.

Frank E. Hollywood’s art shows a tension between the future and the past. He does not create a romanticised picture of the past. On the contrary, he draws from the collective visual history to create a truly modern image. Frank’s work shows his future ideas about art. Nostalgic images are recycled, creating something modern and unique.

Stone carving is still considered very traditional by many viewers. They see and recognise the craft and the material before they are able to see the object itself. Frank E. Hollywood’s sculptures are undoubtedly recognisable figurative. By using iconic objects as inspiration, which are carved into stone to tell new stories, he aims to blur the lines between past, present and future.

‘His Airness’ is available in two versions, in Italian white Carrara Marble and black Nero Marquina Marble, each version comes in an edition of 25 unique pieces. Measurements: 27 x 11 x 16 cm.

Yakymour, home of Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, thè place in the mid 50's 'till the late 80's, where fashion, art, beauty and love meet each other, from all over the world.... Playing as a child in the garden of Yakymour was a happy, innocent time, thanx to ‘Grandma’ Yaky and to Sadruddin, where I could be fully myself and forget ‘the bad things’, and get some strenght. The Last 30 years working as cosmetologist and as a make-up artist for television, theatre, film, fotoshoots, fashion shows, celebrities and individuals gave me a trunk full of experience. My work brought me all over the world and had photoshoot's on location in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, India a.o. At this Blog you will find many reviews of cosmetics, fashion, art, and everything beautiful, as an ode to Begum Om Habibeh 'Yaky' Aga Khan, and named after the place where 'everything' was beautiful: Yakymour. You will find here all the in and outs about skincare, perfums, and make-up, the do's and don'ts, the why's and how's.... The stories behind, and some great interviews... So when you have any question.... please ask. Come on in.... feel yourself at home at Yakymour! Jean Amr P.S. My apologies for future grammatical errors. English is not my mother language :)
