Phil Frost in “Hadiith”

Frost: KRUNK, Dubai

Phil Frost’s seminal collection in “Hadiith”, presented by KRUNK at Cuadro Fine Art Gallery in Dubai, is the culmination of years of laborious, methodical effort.

Frost’s signature correction fluid patterns appear as expected on canvas and baseball bat installations, yet it’s evident that an evolution has taken place. His highly personal stylized technique is pushed to mind-boggling proportions with large-scale works.

Ethereal layers of found paper are collaged on canvas and wood. Comics and newspapers are among the intricate elements involved in this painstaking process. The eye-popping details can only be appreciated up close.

There is an escalating ambition tempered by deliberate patience in Frost’s renditions. It’s not so unimaginable that it takes remarkably long to produce each and every piece, sometimes several years inside his studio.

Frost’s statement in this historic exhibition is resoundingly loud. Without hesitation, the paintings loudly proclaim his place in the pantheon of urban art – a titan in his own right, alongside the other legends in “Hadiith” – Futura and Stash. Most of all, the soulful heart Frost pounds into every inch is palpable across the entire collection.

The photos that follow are some of Frost’s virtuoso contribution to exhibition, presently on display at Cuadro.

KRUNK Updates on Dubai’s “Hadiith” Exhibition

Stash: Krunk, Dubai

KRUNK updates us via SlamxHype on the developments in Dubai’s “Hadiith”: Click here for the latest from Stash. Click here on the latest from Futura. A release will drop soon on the magnificent canvas and baseball-bat installations by Phil Frost, the other artist in the legendary trio contributing to the show in the exotic Middle Eastern playground for the wealthy. “Hadiith”, KRUNK’s second curatorial tour de force, is presented at Cuadro Fine Art. Cuadro will shortly become the city’s first museum of contemporary art, declared by the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates. Keeping its name when the evolution takes place, Cuadro will be allowed to live up to its full potential, as the space is nothing less than spectacular and is situated in the heart of the powerful Dubai Financial District.

Miller, known as a brazen rule-breaking anomaly within the global art scene, is a perfect match to the rogue art showmen that are behind KRUNK. Spectacle, controversy and general destruction is to follow.

Most can only reflect on the history that FUTURA created. Now, the opportunity to witness history-in-the-making is upon us. Things will never be the same.

Futura_Strategic_Synchronicity_Los Angeles_2008.

KRUNK presents Futura: Strategic Synchronicity, Los Angeles, 2008.

Hours after wrapping up the whirlwind that was Strategic Synchronicity, I can finally take a moment to breathe. In the final minutes of the show, I took the time to take my own pictures.

As a partner in KRUNK, this was not only our first project but also Futura’s largest show ever. We are extremely proud that the response was nothing short of phenomenal. Thank you to everyone involved.

Contrasting most shots found on the web, these photos are taken moments before we started taking down paintings. Other places you’ll find coverage of the event are: Sour Harvest, Hypebeast, SlamxHype, VinylPulse, The Social Trust, The Gluttony, Metromix_LA, Juxtapoz, BBallJunkies, Gorilli, Quality Control, JB Classics Lab, Asketch, Frolab, etc.
