"When Franklyn Liegel passed away in [2012], the Los Angeles art world lost one of its most inspiring teachers, gentlest eccentrics, and most underknown talents. A master of color, form, and texture, Liegel was able to fuse paint, drawing media, and collage almost magically into a perfect hybrid of two and three dimensions. His art is joyous, tactile, rhythmic, and full of surprises, and kind of abstract animation that seems to dance even as it lies sewn to its surface. It deserves much wider recognition than it received in his lifetime."

— Peter Frank, The Huffington Post, 6/25/2012

The Franklyn Liegel Art Legacy Fund, the sponsor of this Franklyn Liegel Fine Artist website, was established in 2012 to develop and enhance interest in the body of work and reputation of Franklyn Liegel as an artist and art teacher.
