Friz is a Belfast based artist who works in both traditional and digital mediums. Her work is influenced by the study of classical animation. Friz is part of the SPOOM Collective, a group of artists who frequently collaborate on large-scale murals. Friz’s work largely revolves around the female form, creating a world of sometimes sassy, sometimes sensuous characters.
Her works have been included in group exhibitions in both Belfast, Sligo and Dublin. In 2010 she was a member of the Dublin team competing in the Secret Wars Euro-League, the world’s premier live art battle involving 17 cities from around Europe. More recently her work has been showing as part of the ‘Tags not Labels’ exhibition in the Ulster Museum, which just finished up at the end of february. ‘A shot of my artwork from that show is on the current Northern Irish tourism board tv ad.’
She told IrishStreetArt.com ‘Once I have a character out of my head and down on a bit of paper, or on a wall or canvas, I’ve already started thinking about what I want to draw next, usually some form of fun, female character. I like using acrylic and spray paints for the same reason, they’re super quick to work with and you can get immediate results.’
