is an Estonian artist based in Malta. She creates pop-art and digital collages imbued with a strong retro vibe and her main creative inspirations are taken from retro horror/sci-fi movies, surrealism, and technology of previous decades, all wrapped into modern design. Some of her works reflect an ambiguous and satirical take on consumer capitalism and popular culture. As an artist, she often comes back to a pop culture of the past, visuals that can throw you back in time and give a nostalgic feeling. For her nostalgia isn’t about being stuck in the past, it actually looks to the future, because we can look back at the things we already saw and find new ways to interpret them. 

The artist wants to change people's perception when they think about posters or collages and show that there is more depth to this medium than they expect. Her recurrent subject of aliens can symbolize many different things, however to Frost it really symbolizes being an alien in your own country, having an identity crisis and feeling outcast. One of Frost’s goals is to bring awareness to these subjects and help people understand that they are not alone.
