In 2007, the ABC produced a half hour documentary on David as part of the Artist at Work series. In 2013 Frazer won the peoples choice award at the Fremantle Print award and the Hutchins art on paper prize.

Honesty is the key to understanding David Frazer’s art. It’s about truth and communicating love and despair with his fellow man. It’s about human frailty – wrestling the insecure desire for fame and fortune and the quest for a contented heart. Although his stage is typically Australian the story is universal. Frazer works in painting, wood engraving, etching, lithography and bronze. He’d probably dance if he could. His artist books belong in all the major library collections in Australia.
