Sligo native FRIZ is a visual artist based in Bangor, Co. Down. She works in both digital and traditional mediums, using a combination of aerosols and acrylics depending on the surface she is using at the time.

Her work explores history, myths and the folklore that shapes the cultural identity of a place. Using these stories to create a journey of discovery for people as they reconnect with some of their earliest and formative memories. The medium of murals allow these stories to be presented as part of the fabric of a place to new generations and told in a contemporary way.

Her work leans towards presenting powerful female characters and explores our connection with the natural world. Sometimes it is a mirror, sometimes an aspiration.

Friz studied Classical Animation in BCFE Dublin and Illustration in Telford College Edinburgh. Her work has been showcased in Ireland, England, Colombia, France and Turkey.

  2. Hey Friz, i just saw your mural of St Brigid (as a photo study) on FB and im blown away. When HerStory put out a call to artists for Brigid, i have to say, some of the impressions were Such lazy tropes. You have embodied everything about her and its just unreal! Do you produce prints or reproductions of your mural work?
    I stand in awe of Friz mná. Thank you

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words. I contributed a couple of pieces to HerStory earlier this year but had no time create a new piece for Brigid, so at least I have that in the bag now haha. I am currently working on a print version of that wall, any announcements will be on my FB page and instagram (both thisisfriz) . thanks again, Friz x
