ANDY UPROCK WANTS YOU TO CUPROCK!


AUSTRALIAN ARTIST ANDY UPROCK HAS CREATED A REVOLUTIONARY, EARTH CONSCIOUS WAY OF TAGGING. HE USES STRYOFOAM CUPS AS HIS BRUSH AND FENCES ARE HIS CANVAS. HE TECHNIC IS APTLY NAMED CUPROCKING. HE GOT THE IDEA WHEN HE WOULD SEE KIDS CRAMMING THEIR USED BOTTLES AND CUPS INTO FENCES AT THE SOCCER FIELD AND HE BEGAN TO SEE THE SHAPES AND COLORS EMERGE FROM THEIR BYPRODUCT DESIGNS. AFTER SOME DELIBERATION WITH FELLOW ARTISTS, UPROCK BEGAN TO EXECUTE HIS VISIONS. HE'S TAGGED POLICE STATIONS, HUGE CLIFFS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN STATING,
"The great thing about cuprocking is that the fencing I use has natural geometric symmetry, which I can work with to create some out there, intricate patterns and murals. It's not simple but it is almost limitless in terms of what you can do with it. Inner vision creates apparition."
AS AN ARTIST/EARTH LOVER WHO APPRECIATE GREAT, BIG INTRUSIVE PIECE OF ART, I'M EXCITED TO SEE UPROCKS FUTURE WORK. CHECK OUT SOME OF HIS CREATIONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD AND SOME HOT VIDEOS BELOW...AND PLEASE ENJOY.
