What is Paste Modernism?
Paste Modernism is a group art event presented on Cockatoo Island.
This exhibition focus on ‘Paste-Up’. ‘Paste-Up’ is an ever-expanding and innovative form of street art, that involves an artist making his work in various sizes of paper and then applying it to walls and surfaces within the urban environment by using wheat-paste or wallpaper glue.
The artist Ben Frost curated the event. Ben Frost is an Australian artist from Brisbane. He also manages the website Stupid Krap.
Paste Modernism was the Australia’s largest Paste-Up event ever organized, with artworks of international artists (from Jeremyville to Anthony Lister to Rone). We covered over 150 square meters of wall space.
This is the artwork I did for Paste Modernism. We pasted the print of this drawing on the walls of Cockatoo island in Australia.
