Wilf Frost was born in 1971 in South East London. He started seriously painting at the age of 13, adorning his bedroom walls with huge murals. He was further motivated by a chance meeting with Andy Warhol in Paris which led to a photo in the book “Warhol” by Christopher Makos.
Throughout the late eighties and nineties Wilf fully embraced the pre-millennium urban nightlife scene. He took his art into the street, preferring to paint on advertising hoardings and found objects than board and canvas. His distinctive style was featured on many club flyers, record sleeves, music videos and club décor. He also worked in nightclubs on huge ultra violet paintings, revelling in the vacillation of the pounding music and the interaction between the lights and the paint.
In 1995 he completed a B.A. at UEL and then studied at the Royal College of Art where he graduated in 2001.
His painting and sculpture has been exhibited widely in the UK and internationally. He had shunned conventional exhibition spaces preferring instead to show in shop windows, railway arches, derelict properties and museums. He now sells through Skylark Gallery on Londons South Bank and their website.
Wilf's rhythmic and funky compositions are a riot of colour and a collage of ideas that are inspired by graffiti, urban art, social media, current affairs and bizarre dreams.
Wilf has recently gone back to his routes and started painting on found objects. These range from antique pieces of wood, skip finds and driftwood found on the Thames foreshore.
