Pohutukawa Print by Weston Frizzell
Art Print (NZ)Image size in millimetres: 500 x 500
This stylised pohutukawa design was first glimpsed in Weston Frizzell’s controversial alternative Auckland “Supercity” logo and has just been released (late 2016) into the wild as an open edition print. Successful and frequently controversial, Weston Frizzell’s “high performance art partnership” has its roots in the street art and pop culture melting pot of Auckland’s K Rd, and takes a production-line approach to producing painted one off and edition works, and a series of hit edition prints. Subversively oblivious to conventional notions of authorship or originality, the work is informed by dada, hip-hop, situationism, graffiti art and techno. By applying sampling, cutup and remix techniques to the creative process, Weston Frizzell manipulate appropriated subject matter to create slick, accessible and edgy work with tight production values.
