Friedel Dzubas studied art in his native land before fleeing Nazi Germany in 1939 and settling in New York City. In Manhattan during the early 1950s, he shared a studio with fellow abstract painter Helen Frankenthaler. He began exhibiting his Abstract expressionist paintings at this time. His work was included in the Ninth Street Show in New York City in 1951, and in group exhibitions at the Leo Castelli gallery, the Stable Gallery, and the Tibor de Nagy Gallery among others. After the Ninth Street Show annual invitational exhibitions were held at the Stable Gallery throughout the 1950s. The poster of the second New York Painting and Sculpture Annual at The Stable Gallery in 1953, included an introduction by Clement Greenberg. Surely Dzubas was an artist annointed for success, he was 'well connected' with the power brokers of the 1960's in art.

In the 1960s he became associated with Color field painting and Lyrical Abstraction. He was included in Post-painterly abstraction a 1964 exhibition curated by Clement Greenberg. Dzubas was a friend of Clement Greenberg,[3] who in turn introduced him to Jackson Pollock and other artists. In 1966 and 1968 he won two Guggenheim Fellowships. His large work (up to 24 feet (7.3 m) wide) became more fluid.[4] During the last three decades of his career, Dzubas had more than sixty solo exhibitions around the world. He was represented by the Andre Emmerich gallery and Knoedler Contemporary Arts in New York for more than thirty years. Dzubas used Magna paint an oil based acrylic paint.[5] Magna was originally developed by the paintmakers Leonard Bocour and Sam Golden for and also used by Morris Louis. Dzubas would apply thick layers of color over washes, scrubbing the paint into the unprimed canvas. Dzubas used staining, brushing and other ways of applying color. His paintings were generally large in size and scale, but he made many very small paintings as well.

Dzubas’ works can be found in the permanent collections of the following museums among others; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Lowe Art Museum, Georgia Museum of Art, Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, The Newark Museum, Art Museum, Princeton University, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Herbert F Johnson Museum of Art, Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, The Parrish Art Museum, Everson Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Portland Art Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
