Dick Frizzell

b. 1943, New Zealand

Dick Frizzell studied at the Canterbury University College School of Art , Christchurch, New Zealand (1960-64) and during the following eight years worked in commercial art and advertising. His exhibition of paintings of grocery food cans (Barry Lett Galleries, Auckland, 1978) represented a turning point in his career, establishing a presence as an important New Zealand contemporary artist. Rather than paint images of the real world, Frizzell drew attention to the symbols and signs that represented the real world. 

Frizzell’s paintings and prints have appropriated New Zealand popular culture such as the Four Square man and cultural heritage such as the tiki, as well as international modern art movements such as Russian Constructivism and Cubism.
