The joy of conferences? That precise moment when the overwhelming urge to throw-up from nervousness goes away and you realise that people are actually listening to what you have to say.
Ben Frost is known for his kaleidoscopic Pop Art, mash-up paintings that take inspiration from areas as diverse as graffiti, collage, photo-realism and sign-writing. Subverting mainstream iconography from the worlds of advertising, entertainment and politics, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confrontational and often controversial. Frost founded and runs the online art portal StupidKrap.com and began Pastemodernism – a series of ongoing “paste-up” exhibitions that is among the largest of its kind in the world.
