Weston Frizzell first conceived the Blockbusters design as an illustration of the title in abstract block typography. A digital mock-up was divided into six equal segments. The six segments are collage style mashup of famous art and brand details. The segments (from left to right) are titled "Blurb", "Nama Malarky", "Couched", "Us and Them", "Thonglines" and "Grocer with Moko Erased". The names of the segments are further clues to the identity of artists being remixed by Weston Frizzell in this piece! Intriguingly the six individual Blockbuster paintings exhibited at the Blockbusters show were simply byproducts of the printmaking process, described by Weston Frizzell as "ancillary artifacts" remaining after the digital artwork was completed. In the vocabulary of street art the term Blockbuster refers to a piece where one word occupies the entire wall. The outlined text is predominantly defined by the blacking out of the gaps and negative space. Parasitic of the underlying work, a BLOCKBUSTER envelopes and consumes the surface. A Blockbuster is also the biggest thing of the summer, the thing everyone has to see. Please note that unusually for us this particular print "Blockbusters" is made to order for you, please allow an extra 7-10 days for delivery after placing your order for this print.
