Frank Nussbaum works mostly in three mediums: two dimensional mixed media, collage and photography. His educational background includes a Masters in Art Education, a Masters in Elementary Education, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy.
The majority of Mr. Nussbaum’s mixed media work is either abstract or non-objective. His style can best be described as improvisational. Texture is an important element for him and can involve both the layering of art media and the use of two and three-dimensional objects.
His photography interests include both traditional (portraits and events) and fine art /non-traditional subjects such as expressive portraits, street photography and still life. When shooting still life he is often interested in subjects that are difficult to discern. His interest in many of the subjects he shoots is based on the belief that freezing time can bring out the essence, meaning, and beauty that exists, and is often overlooked in people, places, and things
Some of his biggest influences include Robert Rauschenberg, Jackson Pollack, Jean Michael Basquiat, Edward Weston, and Man Ray.
Frank Nussbaum’s photography studio, art studio, and classroom are all located in the Mellwood Art Center at 1860 Mellwood Avenue, building B, # 194. His company, Frank Nussbaum visual Art provides traditional photography services and teaches photography lessons at the Mellwood location. His art is also on display at that location.
