Frank Calloway

Using ballpoint pen, crayon and marker on butcher paper often over 30 foot long, Frank Calloway often works for seven to nine hour stretches on his drawings. Frank has schizophrenia and has lived since 1952 in mental health centers. His age is disputed, and although he celebrated his 112th Birthday three years ago, others claim he is now 96 years old. What ever his age, his work is magical and epic, in scale and detail.
