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

Oso, Tsuki and Teo, the three resident cats here at the studio, are portrayed below in vectors, in this concept for a birthday card. The creatures are in fact cuter in real life! J Frizza

Smoky

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

My friend Peter has a little zoo in his house. He has two dogs, six cats, a parrot, seven turtles, four lizards, and four fish tanks! All the unique creatures are adorable. Here is one of them, a portrait of Smoky, the parrot. A special bird that got lost, and was found after weeks, by a lost-and-found ad on www.craigslist.com … J Frizza

Another early piece I’ve done with Paintbrush, back in 1997. A portrait of a friend, having some drinks at an art gallery. I love the pix-elation of the image cause by the basic computer tool. JF

Remembering Buster & Shilo

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Shilo and Buster were the most wonderful cats I ever had. Buster left  suddenly a few weeks ago. This past Friday, Shilo joined his brother at the other side of the rainbow bridge, after the saddest departure. I’m broken hearted, yet I know they are both in a better place now. Farewell my beloved creatures! JF

My friend Chris commissioned me a piece for her daughter’s birthday. The picture, based on a photograph taken by Chris, is a scene with daughter and grandson on a marry-go-round.  Here is a detail of the final piece, printed on canvas and stretched on boards. JF
