Cuprocking: Art On The Fence
Andy Uprock is a street artist who's been creating pieces using plastic cups stuck in chain link fence. He often uses 2,000+ cups in his installations which later he recycles. The idea of using cups came to him from his childhood. His friends always used to stuff drink bottles into the fence while they were playing soccer. It was a chat with a fellow artist and friend about doing art on fences that sparked the memory. Andy's been circling the globe recently creating work in Barcelona, London, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. Alphabeta in Greenpoint Brooklyn hosted a cuprocking exhibition last week.
