SEEING IS BELIEVING, a one man show by PHIL FROST opens this week at The Elms Lesters Painting Rooms.
Phil Frost is a self taught artist who served his apprenticeship during the 90s creating elaborate installations on the street of New York. Locations were scouted and measured before he painstakingly created the artwork in his studio. The work, which could consist of many panels, were then taken to the selected site under cover of darkness. His notoriety led to a PBS documentary being made about his work in 1994 when he was only 21, and his transition to galleries followed rapidly. He has continued to move back and forth between culture and counter-culture, operating both inside and outside the system, and has exhibited widely in both commercial galleries and museum spaces in USA, Europe and Far East.
Open to the public from 20th October - 18th November
Monday - Saturday 12.00 - 6.00 pm : open 'til 9.00 pm Thursdays
Nearest tube: Tottenham Court Road
