Kupu - a Weston Frizzell exhibition

Weston Frizzell is the collaborative identity of artists Otis Frizzell and Mike Weston.

Kupu is Maori for 'word' - used by Weston Frizzell with all the Hip Hop connotations & expression intended; exhibition & confabulation of thought & deed with a Weston Frizzell translation; it is personal. about idiosyncratic relationships & familiar imagery.

Since 1999 their art production operation has evolved from that of a celebrity graffiti artist and his art dealer/producer, into an innovative multi media art brand.

Their paintings are diverse and eclectic in influence, carefully planned and produced, applying combined spray paint and brush techniques. Savvy design, a mean eye for art and media history, and an intuitive awareness of pop culture dynamics position their work at the high end of the low brow.

Continuing an exploration and remix of the iconography of NZ fine art and popular culture, in early 2009 Weston Frizzell began a series of letter paintings, featuring individual letters appropriated from iconic NZ artworks and brands .

The intention was to create art prints montaging images of the letter paintings, to form a series of words, and to exhibit the works in variable and repeated configurations, creating words specific to the location of each destination of a touring show. The choice of letters was specifically restricted to those of the written Maori language, and visual subject matter limited to NZ only.
