Frank Ybarra draws inspiration from the landscapes and familiar landmarks of the Southwestern Region of the United States. He is regarded for his simplistic still life’s too. Ybarra was born and raised in a working-class neighborhood in Phoenix, AZ. His keen interest in art developed early; he vividly recalls drawing on brown paper grocery bags as a toddler. His love of art flourished during his years at East High School in Phoenix, followed by studies at Scottsdale Community College and Arizona State University.
His work has been displayed in local and national galleries and exhibitions. In 2012, Ybarra was chosen by the Arizona Tourism Commission to create works for the states’ year-long centennial commemoration. He was nominated for The Arizona Governor’s Art Award, artist category, in 2016.
