Sydney artist Ben Frost: turning trash into art

Sydney local Ben Frost has been hard at work on his latest art series entitled Packaging Paintings. The series focuses on found pharmaceutical and product packaging; a reclaiming of the forgotten, a new life for the old and dead. Mixing his painting skills with his love for popular culture and adding a nice twist of humour, Frost has created a series that is socially aware, sexually obscene and fantastically eye catching.
