DICK FRIZZELL Hawkes Bay, NZ

A highly successful New Zealand artist, known by the nation for his Mickey to Tiki Tu Meke print. Using appropriations of Kiwi culture and icons, mixing in pop-art, Dick Frizzell produced a vast array of works that have been intentionally offered to both high and low brow markets. Frizzell trained at the Ilam School of Fine Arts of the University of Canterbury from 1960 to 1963, studying under artists such as Rudi Gopas and Russell Clark. After this he worked in advertising for many years, and it is through this that he gained his appreciation for the advertising characters he uses in his work.
