This original 2019 artwork by Weston Frizzell titled 'BIG LOVE' is painted with alkyd and enamel on hard board. One of a kind original artwork signed and dated by artist.
BIG LOVE was created as a direct response to the horrific Christchurch Mosque shootings on 15 March, 2019. While the event was still raw in everyones mind, Weston Frizzell wanted to find a way to ’spread some love’… We initially printed giant AO posters with Phantom Bill Stickers, and invited people to buy a poster and for each one they bought and got pasted up around Auckland City, we donated proceeds to victim support in Christchurch. The image itself is an evolution of Weston Frizzell’s famous BEHAVE work, remixing the Walter’s-esque simplified Koru into a heart shape rather than the classic Beehive.
Size: 1200 x 1200mm
Weston Frizzell is the collaborative identity of artists Otis Frizzell and Mike Weston. Successful and frequently controversial, the “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.
