We are excited to welcome back 1xRUN regular Bask as he joins us for his first Birthday RUN! 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 turned his focus to the classic tale of David & Goliath tale as he celebrates another year.

"This piece is in the same tone of the work I've been making this year. I have been inspired by man's potential to overcome hardships. Whether it is facing your personal demons to drawing inspiration from Friedrich Nietzsche's theories about the Übermensch.This latest piece titled, David and Goliath, draws from a similar well. The story of David & Goliath focuses on the underdog that overcame what others thought to be an impossible battle to win. The idea of revolting against the status quo.

The original piece is all hand painted using discarded paint, found objects and cheap brushes. I find that working with imperfect mediums gives my work a ratty, unpolished look I strive for. I wanted this painting to look as though it was cut out of a larger piece on a random back ally wall. The work pushes past the edges to highlight that the full story is beyond just the images within the painting." - Bask

"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.” - via KnownasBask.com

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