1927 Born in Wien (AT)

Born in Vienna, Franke worked from 1973 - 1997 at the University of Munich, lecturing in computer graphics and computer art. His pioneering electronic abstractions paralleled those of Ben Laposky, leading however to his own personal and varied oeuvre. Franke has also written widely on computer art and his first book Computer Graphics - Computer Art was the earliest comprehensive text on the subject.
