ABOUT THIS ART:
"My latest piece is titled "Apocalypse Now" but has little to do with the film from which the title originates. Rather, it's influenced by the horsemen of the Apocalypse and the shape in which I imagine them in. Not as Fiery horses coming down from the great beyond but rather as grotesque manifestations of the things that we find innocent and harmless. The nightmare that, what was will be no more.

This painting is set on a box frame measuring 23 inches wide and 20 inches tall and 2 inches wide. The base is on old panel I found in my studio which at one point was my cutting board for stencils. The image is a juxtaposition of a "My Little Pony" topped with a demonic human skull. The darkness of the skull is contradicted with the inspired colorings of a kid's coloring book. The final piece is clear coated with lacquer and presented for your viewing pleasure." - BASK

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from BASK and 1xRUN.

ABOUT 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.

Bask quickly began to notice similarities between the communistic iconic propaganda from his youth and the consumer advertising of his teens. He 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. A fear cultivated in a repressive regime, had now returned, but to the most unlikely and safest of places- The American living room.
