Black Box Belfast – Green Room
Thurs Feb 7th – 7 p.m.
Exhibition runs until
end of February
Thursday 7th February sees the Black Box in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter play host to the launch of ‘DECKED’, an exciting new exhibition featuring the collaborative talents of FALL Longboards and Northern Irish based artists FRIZ and KiLR.
Co. Down company FALL Longboards hand-craft bespoke skate decks, with several hours of love and passion going into each one. This exhibition sees FRIZ and KiLR customising these unusual canvases with one-off slick graphics, ready to be skated or hung upon a wall.
FRIZ is a Belfast based artist who works in both traditional and digital mediums, more recently working with spray paint on a large scale. Her work largely revolves around the female form, creating a world of sometimes sassy, sometimes sensuous characters. She’s part of the Spoom Collective and counts the Ulster Museum as one of the venues that has exhibited her work.
Kieron Black, aka KiLR, is a professional illustrator and cartoonist with clients in Belfast, London and New York. He has already worked with Friz on the walls of the Alley Cat in Belfast and as a keen surfer, skater and snowboarder has shared the ramps and spilled blood with the crew at FALL and as such is delighted to be a part of DECKED.
