About the Artists

, Nicaragua

Franck de las Mercedes is an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist from New York City. Born in Nicaragua, Franck's multifaceted body of work is noted for his intense use of color, jagged linework and hieroglyph-like text layered in abstract patterns. Referencing memory, current events, family dynamics and sociopolitical topics, Franck's body of work is a journey into an emotionally charged, multicultural landscape.

 

In 2006, de las Mercedes achieved international recognition with his conceptual art project “The Priority Boxes" or “Peace Boxes.” Created by the artist in an effort to promote peace through participatory art, the project earn him a joint legislative resolution from The New Jersey Senate and General Assembly, honoring the artist for his meritorious record of service, leadership, and commitment in the arts and his community.

 

In 2019, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs selected FdlM as a finalist for a permanent public art commission at Carnegie Library 125th St in Manhattan. Named one of "15 Artists About to Dominate 2015" by Complex magazine,  FdlM is the recipient of an  “Outstanding Latino”  award, the “Hearing Our Voices” award and is profiled in the book titled “Learning from Latino Role Models: Inspire Students through Biographies, Instructional Activities, and Creative Assignments” by David Campos). In 2017, Franck's painting "April Flowers" was selected by The Artists Unite Poster Project, in cooperation with the MTA, to become a poster to display in the New York City Subway.
