‘The New Pollution’ – Ben Frost


Known for his kaleidoscopic Pop Art, mash-up paintings, Ben Frost takes inspiration from areas as diverse as graffiti, collage, photo-realism and sign-writing. 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 this new body of work Frost makes us question how the elements of popular culture and advertising influence our everyday lives. Our urban environment is ‘polluted’ with the banal detritus of our hyper-consumption in the form of logos, billboards, colourful packaging and animated characters that aggressively compete to sell us endless sales pitches, disposable solutions and discount lifestyles.

The opening reception is Thursday, 9th July from 6-9 pm, the show opens to the public on 10th July and closes on 2nd August.
