Born 1944 in western Kentucky, Charles Frizzell has been creating artwork all his life.
After graduating from Murray State University in 1967 with a B.S. in Fine Arts, Frizzell headed west, settling in Colorado in 1969. Living in Salida for 15 years, he now lives and works in Canon City, Colorado.
A member of the International Guild of Realism, Frizzell’s art is collected internationally, and the list of honors and awards he has received in regional and national exhibitions is extensive. He has been honored with many solo exhibitions in galleries throughout the southwest, as well as participating in numerous group exhibitions. His work is in the permanent collection of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, and in the Francis S. King Collection of Western Art at the Pueblo Fine Arts Center in Pueblo, Colorado, where he was also invited to hang a solo exhibition. His landscape paintings have been included three times in the prestigious Arts for the Parks exhibitions, winning a bronze medal once, and being selected for an Arts for the Parks poster once.
The inclusion of his fantasy art into “Spectrum; The Best of Contemporary Fantastic Art” In 2000 and 2007 marked the first time juried in an international exhibit. His painting of the Great Sand Dunes was accepted into the top 100 of the new “Paint the Parks” national exhibit in 2008, and a small painting of Pike’s Peak was accepted into the top 50 Mini of the Paint America exhibit in 2008. His award winning works from past Phippen Memorial exhibitions were included in the 2007 “Winners’ Round Up” exhibition at the Phippen Museum in Prescott, AZ. In the mid and late eighties, he worked with Frank Howell in his studio in Denver and later at his studio in Santa Fe, NM, doing under-painting and layout work.
He is very versatile with style, subject, and media, and although he continues to work with oils on canvas, many of his recent paintings are rendered in acrylics on stretched canvas. He also works with watercolors, pen and ink drawings, graphite drawings, lithography, and a unique mixed media on illustration board. His mystical figurative images of Native American people have been collected worldwide and published on calendars, note cards, books, CD covers, puzzles, and collector plates, as well as limited edition signed prints and posters available through Frizzell Studios and the galleries which represent his art. His works of fantasy and mysterious lands and figures are presented with an authority and a realism to be plausible to all who have had dreams and visions of other realms.
