Spoon Full of Sugar - Exhibition PDF

During his month-long residency in Vienna the controversial painter and street artist Ben Frost showcases a unique body of work 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.The exhibition features paintings on site specific found objects such as pharmaceutical boxes, candy and cereal packaging. 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. “Spoon Full of Sugar“ aims to re-evaluate our understanding of product advertising by juxtaposing unlikely and confronting elements into some of our most loved and well known consumer icons.
