New York-based painter, Francine Tint, has been a working artist since the early 70s. Tint's artistic career began as a successful costume designer and fashion stylist - working for David Bowie, Ridley Scott, and Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN), among others. After enduring a series of losses, Tint’s life took on a different meaning with dedication solely to painting. Impediments impede, but they can also inspire. Working as a stylist by day, and a painter by night, Tint developed her own method of large-scale, color-based painting.
Tint's work continues to be shown widely, both nationally and internationally. Her tireless trajectory of artistic experimentation has made her work sought after by both private collectors and institutions. Tint is held in the permanent collection of over 28 museums, including The Neuberger Museum of Art, The Heckscher Museum of Art, The Portland Museum of Art (among the Clement Greenberg Collection), and The Krannert Art Museum, to name a few. Francine Tint continues to paint today and conducts abstract painting workshops at The Art Students League of New York.
