Marian Noone aka ‘Friz’ is an emerging Belfast based artist who works in both traditional and digital mediums. She is part of the SPOOM Collective, a group of artists who frequently collaborate on large scale murals.
Friz’s work largely revolves around the female form, creating a world of sometimes sassy, sometimes sensuous characters. Her works have been included in group exhibitions in both Belfast, Sligo and Dublin. Friz studied Classical Animation in BCFE Dublin and Illustration in Telford College Edinburgh. In 2010 she was a member of the Dublin team competing in the Secret Wars Euro-League, the world’s premier live art battle involving 17 cities from around Europe.
She has been invited as a guest artist to paint at such events as ‘Eurocultured’ in Manchester , ‘Smithfield Festival’ in Dublin, ‘N.P.L.D.’ Festival in Sligo and the ‘BASE Festival’ in Belfast.
Friz’s work is influenced by the study of classical animation.
