"This piece 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.

We're presented with a facade of eternally maniacal smiles and over-excited cartoon characters trying to sell us more and more, and so I wanted to show that these characters are excited by more subversive things than playing with flowers and candy-corn. " - Ben Frost

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Ben Frost and 1xRUN.

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.
