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.
