Frost’s first UK solo show in six years opens next month in Brighton, and will present a series of pieces based around fast-food and medication packaging.
The show, entitled Supermarket Sweep, showcases Frost’s magpie-like approach to crating art, bowing from Pop Art, collage, graffiti and signwriting styles.
‘By subverting mainstream iconography from the worlds of advertising, entertainment and politics, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confronting and often controversial’, says No Walls gallery, which is hosting the show.
‘Frost’s painted packages are a refreshing double-take on our hyper-commercial reality.’
The majority of the works in the exhibition show comic-book characters layered over discarded packaging, many from fast-food beacon McDonalds.
Elsewhere, those GCSE art staples, eminence packaging, get the same treatment, such as in this valium-based piece:
Supermarket Sweep runs from 2 – 23 August at No Walls Gallery, 114 Church Street, Brighton BN1 1UD
