Frankie Martin's work rethinks social tropes, online identities, relationships and normative behavior. Born as the illegitimate grandchild of Cesar Romero; the languages of comedy, dance and color are embedded in Martin's genes. Frankie's video and performance work deconstructs what is appropriate via confusing the internet for reality, confusing public spaces for private spaces and abstracting language. Martin is currently producing a very long video work entitled, We are wild dogs with turquoise fur laughing at full moons, based on characters from a book of the same title.

Frankie is represented by CANADA in New York City and is currently attending an MFA candidate at the University of California San Diego.
