“Digital Patchwork” @ Model Call Salon

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

My new pieces are now hanging at Model Call Salon, Hillcrest, San Diego. “Digital Patchwork” is the title of the show featuring new work inspired by American folk art, Quilts, and nature. Based on original drawings, the compositions are colored digitally, printed on canvas with archival ink, then framed or mounted on boards. The salon lights up with the infusion of color! J Frizza

Lápices y Píxeles / Pencils & Pixels – The Work of Julio Pompa Frizza @ CAV / Museo del Barro, Asunción, Paraguay

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

I have the honor to be exhibiting at the Centro de Artes Visuales / Museo del Barro, the main contemporary and folkloric art museum in Paraguay. The show, titled Pencils & Pixels –Lápices y Píxeles­– is a retrospective view at my digital work from 2003 to 2013. The pieces are drawings colored with the computer and digital collages. The overview includes more than 20 prints on paper or canvas, shown in glass cases, and a slide show projection of about 50 images, in the Florian Paucke room.

The Museo del Barro houses an extraordinary art collection of pre columbian, colonial and indigenous art from Paraguay and Latin America. In addition, the museum focuses on popular and contemporary Paraguayan art. Several rooms are dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions. The gift shop is fantastic, they feature a great selection of local art for sale.

The opening night was a great success, a party with family and friends, enjoying traditional Paraguayan food, an inspiring and unforgettable night in Asunción.

If you happen to be in Paraguay, the heart of South America, stop by the museum, the show will be open until the end of June 2013. J Frizza

Happy Thanksgiving!

Friday, November 19th, 2010

The holidays are here, and I’m using my free time to work on some personal projects.  I’m sharing today a detail of a pattern I created recently, inspired by the colors of fall and Oriental rugs. I am grateful for the opportunity to work on illustrations, design and art with amazing clients, and also have the time for my own art. Each project is a challenge and a source of satisfaction… I love what I do. Happy Thanksgiving! J Frizza

Dreamer

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

Here is a detail of a large piece I’m working on. “Dreamer” is a digital collage with drawings and patterns, still in the works. However, I’ve gotten to a point where I really like the piece, yet is not finished at all. I’m torn, because I love the freshness of the casual and hurried composition, and I don’t want to loose that feeling. Technology though, allows me to record and save every stage of the process… I love computers! J Frizza

The Waterman

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

At Monkey C Media we just finished another fantastic Word Press Blog customization. This new blog site is home to Norris van den Berg’s new book “The Waterman,” a historical fiction novel set in the time of the American Civil war. Check it out: www.norrisvandenberg.com. The book’s theme gave me the opportunity to include patterns, script fonts and art in the design … the overall look of the site came together nicely. J Frizza
