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

Cut Show

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

My pieces are up at the new Cut Salon on Fifth and Grape, here in town. The colorful pieces stand out against the minimal decor, the open floor is the perfect space to show art. It feels like a museum in there! Check out the pictures. J Frizza

Del Mar at Night

Monday, February 14th, 2011

I love going to the beach at any time. The night is specially magical and mysterious. The water and the sand shimmer with the moon light, the deserted landscape is the perfect setting for an intimate encounter with nature. Here is a digital sketch based on my impressions of Del Mar beach at night. Romantic! J Frizza

These past few weeks I’ve been busy designing a book cover and Word Press customization for MonkeyCMedia.com client Belo Cipriani. The San Francisco based author is launching a memoir recounting the details of how he became blind, and following the challenges of living with the new disability. The compelling book is coming out in April. The site is up and running, take a look: www.blindamemoir.com

Foreclosure

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Southern California is beautiful. Even at this time of economic uncertainty and transition, the neighborhood is an abundant source of inspiration. The dramatic ‘Foreclosure,’ ‘Bank Owned,’ and ‘Sale’ signs stand solemn in perfectly manicured and trimmed yards, in front of ghostly empty houses. This American dream has become a nightmare for some. The vacation weather, the quintessential California palm tree, the perfectly cleaned street seam out of place in such sad scenario. Though change is good, the organic urban web still regenerates and thrives. Here is another digital ‘impression’ of my neighborhood. J Frizza

Walking around the neighborhood always gets my creative juices flowing. I’m sharing here a digital scene from University Hights, a neighborhood in San Diego, California. An old Victorian house in the afternoon light. 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

Yoga Classes

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

I have been doing yoga for 6 months now, and it feels great! The ‘classroom’ is a peaceful room with wooden floors and big windows. The floor vibrates with good energy. The classes are chance encounters with strangers and new found friends. We reunite a few times a week for a soft synchronized mob dance in this sacred place. And the yoga classes have been a source of inspiration for me… here is one of my ‘yoga classes’ inspired digital sketches. J Frizza

Winter Garden

All the plants in the yard are sleepy and quiet. The winter cold air has them all hibernating, yet the garden is full of flowers. Life goes on in this colorful reality! 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

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

The Monkey C Media Gallery was a busy place this past first weekend of October. For the South Park Autumn WalkAbout,  MCM opened a new show titled “People of South Park”. Chad Thompson, photographer and co-owner, presented a series of photographic portraits of people from around the neighborhood. The show  was a huge success. More than 500 people cruised by, enjoying the live music, wine and cupcakes. A whole community brought together by art … Remarkable! JF
