Dick Frizzell

22 March 2015

Dick Frizzell, MNZM is a New Zealand artist whose work is best described as pop in its appropriation of kitsch kiwiana icons and incorporation of them into his often cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.

His best-known work uses as its base the “Four Square man”, an advertising character for the Four Square grocery chain.

Frizzell is also responsible for the lithograph ‘Mickey to Tiki’. This has now become a best selling print in New Zealand.
