Humorous and tongue in cheek, Alex Frost's haptic art captures an optimized and energized life ‘on-the-go’ reflecting on the rapid transitions in daily life and super-convenience products. He carefully selects moments within this transitory, transactional lifestyle and captures them though film and sculpture; his YouTube series of Wet Unboxings parodies the popular 'unboxing' trend, slowly unpacking otherwise mundane items underwater to mesmerizing effect, while his series of resin-encased works strips away the function of convenience foods, giving them permanence and an almost futuristic quality.
Alex Frost is an artist based in London. He has exhibited at numerous esteemed institutions across the UK, Europe and the USA. His most recent exhibitions were solo shows at TACO! London (2021) and FirstSite, Colchester (2020). In 2018 his YouTube channel of Wet Unboxing videos was featured in 30+ articles across all continents, in 10 languages and was featured on knowyourmeme.com.
