I saw my first piece on the wall of the bar at Oxford Art Factory in April this year while waiting in line to see The Raveonettes play. Disposable plastic cups stuck into wire-mesh fencing to create geometric patterns. Simple but effective. How clever, I thought!
I didn't know who the artist was then and only found out recently that his name is Andy Uprock, after his work was featured in a Mooks ad with a link to his blog.
He "is a Sydney based artist whose work includes transforming streetscapes into large floating cup installations. The method and practice of his work runs parallel to the culture of graffiti and he titles this movement Cuprocking."
I'll be "stalking" his blog for I'd love to see his next on-the-street piece up-close, before his plastic-cup art gets disposed off.
