"This was one of four large pieces that I produced for the exhibition 'Company of Thieves' at Inner State Gallery in Detroit in 2013. I haven't really painted in this detailed 'mash-up' style for a while, so it was good to get back into. I enjoy making these types of paintings, because they're very 'organic' in that I don't necessarily have any specific idea where it's going until it's nearly complete. The characters and elements just kind of appear and interact between themselves to define hidden and subliminal ideas." - Ben Frost

ABOUT Ben Frost:
Australian contemporary artist Ben Frost is best known for his bold, irreverent Pop Art. His instantly recognisable take on pop culture twists up everyday iconography from the world’s biggest brands. Subverting meaning and messages from the mainstream media, Frost’s scything commentary on advertising, entertainment and politics is both confronting and controversial.
Exhibiting internationally for the past two decades, Frost’s solo shows span London, New York, Sydney, Los Angeles, Toronto, Singapore, Berlin, Miami, Torino, Bangkok and San Francisco. His work has featured extensively across media institutions such as the BBC, Wall Street Journal, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.

Exhibition highlights encompass shows at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, the MCA in Sydney, Urban Nation Contemporary Urban Art Museum, Berlin, and inclusion in an exclusive showcase of artists for Pop the Streets at Saatchi Gallery, London.
