ABOUT EXHIBITION

“Every time I watch a streaming video on the internet, I’m forced to sit through an advertisement at the beginning of each video.  Seeing the little ‘SKIP AD’ button made me consider that a big part of our engagement with society is via a never ending series of advertisements.  Sometimes I wish we could just skip the entire millennium – SKIP A.D.”

By subverting mainstream iconography from the worlds of advertising, entertainment and politics, he creates a visual framework that is bold, confronting and often controversial.

His imagery often shows hentai inspired girls, highlighting the hyper-sexualisation which overwhelms modern advertising. Children’s’ characters appear sexualised, Freddy Krueger reigns large over an American flag, In SKIP A.D.’ Frost welcomes the viewer into his disturbing American Dream.
