What For his latest show, ‘Art Of Noise’, Ben Frost continues to explore several of his favourite themes including his love/hate relationship with the visual signifiers of consumerism that we are bombarded with every day – logos, slogans, characters and motifs. The logos and characters are overlaid and juxtaposed in these works to create linear dialogues – (snow white interacts with Ren and Stimpy, Batman punches small children, and the heavy metal band Slipknot’s logo sits below Subway fast food text).
When Opens Thursday 23 September and runs in tandem with James Jirat Patradoon’s HEARTACHES until October 23.
Where Boutwell Draper Gallery – 82-84 George Street, Redfern NSW
Pedestrian’s Weekly Art Wrap Up

What ‘Heartaches’, the latest collection of works by Sydney-based artist and illustrator James, explores observations of pop constructions of masculinity and of self-representation – a sometimes bleak, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, but always insightful personal critique.
When Opens Thursday 23 September and runs in tandem with Ben Frost’s ART OF NOISE until October 23.

If that doesn’t keep you busy enough, you should check out ‘Busted Parachute: Collector’s Box Set’ an excellent new hardcover book by artist SICKBOY.

Sickboy on ‘Busted Parachute’:
“The aptly-named ‘Busted Parachute’ hardcover book celebrates the most defining moments from my last ten years of painting, travelling, solo exhibitions and generally freefalling through life. These amazing times and experiences, including photography projects with elusive photographer, Viktor Vauthier, and classic street actions from across the world, have now been bound in a glorious limited edition book for collectors to enjoy. In fact, this book release grew into something so special, I decided to work with P.O.W to create a collector’s box set which includes the book and limited edition screen-prints.
