Text by Pushead, Carlo McCormick.

Part of a whole gang of street artists--from Barry McGee to Swoon--who have broken into the art world in the last decade or so, Phil Frostís signature style is a funky tribalism--Hawaii by way of New York City--infused with a quirky sense of art history and design. In the 1990s, Frost honed his skills by painting walls, found objects and street detritus with his intricate, compulsive and highly evolved form of tagging. Frostís gallery exhibitions are crowded affairs, filled with wildly patterned totemic objects and baseball bats while the walls are stacked with colorful mixed media paintings. He crafts his painstaking paintings by collaging layers of found imagery on grounds of symmetrical black-and-white patterning, which he paints with correction fluid, and that often morph into language-like glyphs or symbols. Frost states, ďI believe [my work] is indigenous to myself. I believe that within every person there is an indigenous expression of themselves.Ē Including an essay by New York journalist Carlo McCormick and notorious lowbrow artist Pusshead, this is Frostís first monograph, and an invaluable introduction to the evolution of his style.
