ABOUT THIS ART:
We are excited to welcome back 1xRUN regular BASK as he joins us yet again with his latest hand-painted multiples Because Art Should Kill Protestor . Since our inception BASK has been a fixture here at 1xRUN and never one to remain still Bask has brought us a piece that was finished just last weekend. This time around the Florida-native has again showcased his iconic Art Should Kill motif, this time with a custom made hand-crafted box to compliment each piece.
Each piece in this RUN includes:
- (1) One Art Should Kill Protester 11 x 24.5 x 1.5 Inches. Pieces are individually hand cut from .5" plywood and each attached sandwich board sign is cut from .25" plywood with a .75" offset at the base.
- 2 White tipped screws for proper installation. Pre-drilled hanging holes are directly through the eyes.
- Each includes a custom crate which measures 13"x 2"x 26.5.
This RUN comes signed by BASK with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.
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.
