Spencer Keeton Cunningham – ACCESSION – Interview

Spencer Keeton Cunningham has finally launched a new solo exhibition after 2 years on the road. An artist who set forth over 2 years ago on a self proclaimed painting journey, Cunningham has most recently been painting large walls throughout the United States, Australia and New Zealand. He has continued to remain on the road with no home base, venturing solo from one location to the next, from the border of Southern Mexico to the iced over roads of Alaska over the past 800 days. He has just recently launched his most recent solo exhibit from the road, titled “Accession” at One Grand Gallery in Portland, Oregon. 


The exhibit features colourfully painted walls bearing a skeleton of an American Indian figure dropping a firearm, a distressed Native American pattern, and a 4-eyed wolf apparently sliced into various pieces showing elements of its skeletal structure.  In Cunningham’s words, this show marks the first instalment of this “style” of show he has ever done in the United States.

Denial – Studio Visit

While we were out in the States, Canadian artist Denial was recently over the border in Detroit for his part in the 1xRun ‘Murals in the Market’ project. We caught up with him there and skipped back over the border to check out his studio in Windsor, just across the water from the Motor City. Currently he shares his artist’s playground of a studio with the director of Australian print company Stupid Krap, Ben Frost, when he’s in the country.

In his own words, Denial takes us on a photo tour through his studio and neighbourhood…

Thinkspace x Stolenspace LAX/LHR Groupshow

‘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.


A SHOWCASE of Stupid Krap…


Curated by Ben Frost and Aaron Craig, SHOWCASE brings together a selection of NEW TALENT as well as some of the best Australian and international artists that have worked with Stupid Krap over the last 12 months.

Co-curator Ben Frost words Damo up on the show.

Damo: Tell us about the upcoming Stupid Krap Showcase?

BF: It’s an intimate snapshot of Stupid Krap’s footprint within the local and international art world – celebrating the amazing talent that we have had the pleasure to work with over the last few years, and some of the new artists we’re excited to showcase.

Blankspace Gallery will be filled from floor to ceiling with international artists like Sharktoof, Greg Gossel, Mysterious Al and Denial, as well as Australian artists who have been making it big overseas like Vexta, Twoone, Gemma O’Brien and We Buy Your Kids. Some of the new names that we’re excited to work with for the first time, such as Nathaniel Kiwi, John Avanti, Loretta Lizzio, Danilo Brandao and William Ngheim – will be well worth coming to check out.
