As you know, The Idle Man’s always on the hunt for the latest and coolest goings-on around the capital and further afield - whether that’s a new exhibition or a recently opened burger bar, we’re always interested to hear about it. One of our freshest discoveries is the talent of Australian pop artist, Ben Frost, whose highly anticipated month-long exhibition, Supermarket Sweep, kicks off this weekend at No Walls Gallery in Brighton.
Before we crack on with a selection of his bold and confrontational work, let’s tell you a bit about him, his work and his exhibition. Known for his ‘mash-up’ style paintings, Frost’s pop art style ridicules modern day consumerism habits through challenging mainstream iconography from the world of politics, entertainment and advertising.
Supermarket Sweep showcases Frost’s knack for fusing found imagery with discarded fast-food packaging, often resulting in controversial re-works of a number of well-known products we’re bombarded with on a daily basis.
After sell-out shows in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles already this year, this is definitely an exhibition you won’t want to miss!
Supermarket Sweep takes place from 2 August to 23 August at No Walls Gallery Brighton
