About Alistair Frost

Inspired by objects from everyday life, Alistair Frost (British, b. 1981) is known for his carefully executed paintings of simple graphic images. Executed in crisp, clean lines, and lightly washed colors, his works express playfulness and optimism. At the same time, his fusion of clip art and fine art techniques comment on the devaluation of art through mass production and wide-spread distribution.
