27.03.2016 to 31.05.2016 - STREET ART PASSAGE VIENNA
Ben Frost (AUS): FEAR
• Days with event
Venue: STREET ART PASSAGE VIENNA, between MQ and Breite Gasse
During his month-long residency in Vienna the controversial painter and street artist Ben Frost designed the panel for the STREET ART PASSAGE, critiquing our media-obsessed society and the loss of innocence through advertising.
Ben’s work subverts logos, icons and characters from popular culture and re-presents them in startling and often confronting new ways.
Starting to do so in 2011 the artist confronts the conjoined twins of capitalism and consumerism with striking compositions of Pop-Art aesthetics, playful characters of childhood cartoons, sex and violence. By remixing mainstream iconography, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confronting and often provocative.
