Everything about La Rocque’s stenciling method sticks to the classic technique… except he paints by blowing marijuana smoke onto the paper. He smokes a lot to get the effect- a stain which looks like the brown resin you’d find inside of a well-used weed pipe.

Possibly a better Smoke Weed to This than the last best Smoke Weed to this. Wait, What? I’m high as fuck. Rad art that will permanently solidify your boner for Japanese stuff.

Ben Frost is a Sydney, Australia based artist that makes work that is critical of modern (pop) culture, capitalism and society at large. Heady it is not – you don’t have to read too far into an image of two girls poking at each other’s nipples superimposed onto a pack of Viagra – but it is fun, bright, and kinda makes you feel like you’re in a porno Disneyland.
