Ben Frost is Dead.

Australian artist Ben Frost was born in Brisbane, QLD.

His visual work places common iconic images from advertising, entertainment, and politics into startling juxtapositions that are often confrontational and controversial.

He is known for his kaleidoscopic Pop Art, mash-up paintings that take inspiration from graffiti, collage, photo-realism and sign-writing.

With a blatant disrespect for the signifiers of our visual culture, Ben creates multi-layered surfaces of refreshing intensity.

He has been exhibiting throughout Australia and internationally over the last 10 years, including solo shows in London, New York and San Francisco, as well as group shows in Beijing, Mongolia, Amsterdam, Berlin and Singapore.

Ben was a selected artist for the 2002 Primavera exhibition at the Sydney MCA, and was a guest speaker at the 2008 Semi-Permanent and AG IDEAS conferences throughout Australia.

His work has appeared in countless magazines and newspapers an in 2006 he co-founded the online art portal and also began and runs the international paste-up event ‘Paste Modernism’.

He currently lives in Sydney and operates Stupidkrap Studios, a multi-displinary art collective of 10 established and emerging artists in Annandale.
