We are excited to welcome back 1xRUN regular BASK as he joins us for his latest RUN featuring limited edition prints + original artwork. Since our inception BASK has been a fixture here at 1xRUN and never one to remain still Bask has brought us yet another piece that is still wet with paint finished just last week.

"In the past month, I've been really into doing figurative portrait style works in a halftone style. I find painting all those dots is like meditation for me. Not to mention, I really love the look of an image painted on halftones. I've been plotting this piece in my head for over a year now and finally the moment was right to bring it to life. The painting with framing took a couple of days to complete. I've rarely painted images in halftones and now a lot of my current work had some halftone element in it. The other unique event to this piece is the dramatic texture of the panel it's painted on. It has old staples in it on top of the thick layered drippy base." - BASK

"Bask is the moniker of one, Ales Bask Hostomsky, who along with his parents emigrated from Czechoslovakia to Florida and began to soak up America’s popular iconic imagery along with the sun. He quickly began to notice similarities between the communistic iconic propaganda from his youth and the consumer advertising of his teens. Bask soon discovered that they were simply, two sides of the same coin. Each vying for our short-lived attention spans, all the while selling us (or telling us?) anything and everything from Marxism to McDonalds. Seeking conspiracies -and finding them embedded in the popular iconography of the mass media, Bask began painting bold, media critical broadsides to assuage his fear of being manipulated.

The artist’s richly textural work imbue his “anti-iconic,” sometimes satirical worldview with an undercurrent of dark emotion. His canvases are the city’s flotsam and jetsam of industrial and consumer decay. Combining his graphic skill with his trademark multi-layered applications, Bask builds up the surface only to break down the image. “My art is a type of deconstruction,” says Bask, “I try to focus on the imperfection of things, rather then their unachievable perfection." - via knownasbask.com

A fear cultivated in a repressive regime, had now returned, but to the most unlikely and safest of places- The American living room.
