About FrankBased out of Brockville, Ontario, Frank Cipra has been creating art since the 1980s. It wasn’t until 1991 when he saw the artwork on Ed Belfour’s mask, created by the legendary Greg Harrison, that he became interested in goalie masks. He found that this medium combined his two passions - hockey and art - and he was hooked. He soon left his job at an advertising agency and began airbrushing full-time.Frank has since completed over 3,000 masks for goalies at all levels of play, including the NHL and Olympics. He produced some of the most iconic NHL goalie artwork of his generation with his work for Itech Hockey, while some of his masks remain on display in the Hockey Hall of Fame.In 2005, Frank expanded his business to include other outlets for his craft. He’s painted cars, motorcycles, helmets, boats, and even remote-controlled boats. He opened a new shop in 2011 in Frankville, Ontario, to support his busy practice. He also teaches airbrushing classes at a local art school.To begin each project, Frank schedules a discussion with his client. It can be as short as a five-minute conversation or as long as a detailed email. He then draws from his imagination and vast experience to create the final illustration.Feel free to contact Frank with your ideas. He looks forward to working on your next project.Over the years Frank has done many interviews, here are a few, as well as some news items:Eddie Pasquale’s Bizarre Caps MaskInGoal MagazineUSA TodayYahoo SportsNew York TimesBrockville Recorder & TimesHere is an interesting article about some of the amazing work Frank has done on motorcycles and trailers:MotorcycleMojo Magazine
