From Artists Denial and Ben Frost:
Canadian artist Denial and Australian born Ben Frost have joined forces in a bold exhibition of new work that explores the boundaries of appropriation, in confronting re-imaginings of our current dystopian society.
October 18 – November 15

Self-confessed ‘visual thieves’, both artists have had a long history of stealing and subverting the cultural icons that the advertising and consumerist world has thrust upon us, to create new and pertinent interpretations that are as confronting as they are humorous.
Denial and Frost formed an instant friendship since their meeting in Canada in 2011 and have been creating engaging street and gallery work ever since. ‘Company of Thieves’ sees their collaboration push further, with large and small-scale works that reference Pop Art, Graffiti and the corporate world they rebel against.
