Ben Frost is known for his kaleidoscopic Pop Art: mash-up paintings that take inspiration from areas as diverse as graffiti, collage, photorealism and sign writing. Over the last ten years he has been exhibiting throughout Australia and internationally, including solo shows in London, New York and San Francisco, as well as group shows in Beijing, Mongolia, Amsterdam, Berlin and Singapore.
By subverting mainstream iconography from the worlds of advertising, entertainment and politics, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confronting and often controversial. In print, his work has appeared in countless magazines and newspapers including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Oyster, WeAr, Monster Children, Ok!, HQ, Eyeline, Australian Art Collector, Broadsheet, and Art Monthly.
When not designing and painting, he co-founded the online art portal StupidKrap.com and also began, and still runs, the international paste-up event ‘Paste Modernism’. He resides and creates in Sydney.
