An Ape, Before Apes were a ‘Thing’!
Brandon Sines was brought up between three major cities, Los Angeles, New York and Toronto but always had a special attachment to New York. Through this connection, the energy of NYC birthed Frank Ape.
He finds inspiration in an arrangement of things from the sunset to music and even snippets from a conversation. Not one thing in particular but inspiration mostly comes from an emotional place. Something just “clicks”.
“Frank Ape” was an ape Pre-Defi and Pre-Bored Apes. Frank is a mythical ape that lives on the East Coast, in New York City among his human counterparts but without restrictions and limitations.
He encapsulates both positivity and equality. Frank Ape believes in the power of imagination to “Create Your Own Universe.” In a playful manner, he inspires people and other animals through thoughtful action.
This endearing character reminds us that helping others helps everyone. Mankind has somewhat forgotten this simple yet effective outlook on life. To get back to basics! In this way, Frank is an extension of everyone and everything.
Some of his art work has been collected by well known names in the music, art and business industry that cannot be named due to privacy. Frank Ape, was even featured in season 13 of Project Runway.
