Let’s not call it ‘Cuprocking’
Although a certain Sydney artist, claims to have invented what he calls ‘cuprocking‘ (that’s a little bit like saying you invented drawing by calling it ‘Penstroking’) – it’s basically a type of street art made by pushing plastic cups into a chain link fence.
He might have coined the cute name, he’s DEFINITELY not the first to do it. Just doing a search on plastic cup fence and you’ll get a lot of interesting work, many of which take place considerably before the debut of ‘cuprocking’.
Anyway we personally really like the ‘You Are Beautiful’ cup fence installation (pictured above). It was done back in 2003. What we especially dig about it is how it evolved over the course of two months by randoms interacting/collaborating with the art – which was documented by the original artists in photographs – Check it out.
Other examples of plastic cup/fence artwork we like, after the jump.

A much more interesting execution of the same basic concept. By Trifocal Projects
