Canadian artist Denial and Australian born Ben Frost have joined forces in a bold exhibition of new work that explores the boundaries of appropriation, in confronting re-imaginings of our current dystopian society. "Company of Thieves" at Inner State Gallery in Detroit with special guest DJ Qbert. These self-confessed ‘visual thieves have a long history of stealing and subverting the cultural icons that the advertising and consumerist world has thrust upon us, creating new and pertinent interpretations that are as confronting as they are humorous. This collaboration with DJ Qbert carries on with this theme as all 3 artists join together as a Company of Thieves, sampling and remixing to create something entirely new.

This RUN comes signed and numbered by Ben Frost, Denial, DJ Qbert and includes a Letter of Provenance from Inner State Gallery.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Australian born artist Ben Frost is known for his kaleidoscopic Pop Art, mash-up paintings that take inspiration from areas as diverse as graffiti, collage, photorealism and sign-writing.

He has been exhibiting throughout the world for the last 12 years and has been involved in his own share of controversy. In 2000, he faked his own death for an exhibition suitably titled ‘Ben Frost is Dead’ which made national news in Australia. His painting ‘White Children Playing’ caused a stir for its graphic depiction of children using drugs and a masked and disgruntled assailant slashed one of the paintings in his exhibition at the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane. Police also tried to remove one of his collaborative artworks in an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney because of its graphic nature. He also began and continues to run the Australian street art website ‘Stupid Krap’ and started the yearly paste-up festival Paste-Modernism, which is the largest of its kind in the world.

With over 500,000 of his adhesive logos displayed in public places around the world, the DENIAL PROJECT has become a conceptual piece of marketing absurdism. DENIAL intends to challenge traditional ideas about graffiti and public art, as well as the excessive corporate use of public space.

Street art is a transient form of expression with a generally short life span. Frustrated by this, DENIAL began to bridge his street art ideas, into tangible works, that gallery’s and collectors could procure, avoiding the expiration date that they would otherwise be subject to. DENIAL has drawn from his background in graffiti, graphic-design, and traditional sign manufacturing, to develop his own style of vivid mixed-media paintings. Often depicting pin-up models, over-sized signage, and over-sized magazine and newspaper covers, DENIAL laces his work with cryptic, abstract, and urban themes
