Ben Frost

Der australische zeitgenössische Künstler Ben Frost ist vor allem für seine kühne, ausgefallene Pop Art bekannt. Seine sofort erkennbare Interpretation der Popkultur verdreht die alltägliche Ikonografie der größten Marken weltweit. Indem er die Bedeutung und die Botschaften der Mainstream-Medien untergräbt, ist Frosts bissige Kunst über Werbung, Unterhaltung und Politik sowohl konfrontierend als auch kontrovers.

In den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten hat Frost international ausgestellt. Seine Einzelausstellungen fanden in London, New York, Sydney, Los Angeles, Toronto, Singapur, Berlin, Miami, Turin, Bangkok und San Francisco statt. Seine Arbeiten wurden in zahlreichen Medien wie der BBC, dem Wall Street Journal, der Vogue und Harper’s Bazaar veröffentlicht.
