Cuprocking is a new form of street art. Its creator, Andy Uprock, calls it “a graffiti revolution”.

The Sydney, Australia-based artist was inspired as a child while playing soccer. The kids would stick their garbage into wire fencing and he would then creatively add more junk to form patterns and words.

Later on, Uprock came up with the idea to use cups which fit nicely into diamond shaped wire fencing. The coloured plastic cups have become “floating walk-by galleries” showcasing his artwork. He typically uses 2,500 cups for each project which are then recycled.

Uprock is so innovative, he has also come up with Braille poetry on the cups which some say is the first graffiti artform for the blind. His work has been exhibited around the world â€" in galleries both indoors and outdoors.
