Frank Stella was born in Malden, Massachusetts in 1936. He studied painting at Phillips Academy in Andover. He also graduated from Princeton with a degree in history. He plays squash religiously, loves auto racing and owns a horse farm in New York.

He has explored new expressions of formal abstraction since he arrived on the New York art scene in 1959. First his black paintings and shaped canvases, then monumental geometric constructions known as the Protractor series, followed by several decades of works that challenge the distinction between painting and sculpture. During the 1970s, Stella's art evolved to include mixed-media reliefs and metal works with three-dimensionality suggestive of relief sculpture.
