Each piece in this RUN will come in a cradled wood box ready to hang.
"This latest batch of masked paintings is an homage to the art of sticker-tags. I love seeing news stands and street signs covered with stickers. I always pause when I see one especially bombed and gaze at how awesome this collaborative painting, that multiple artists contributed to, came to life. This inspired me to pull out my collection of stickers I've accumulated over the years and make these paintings.
Each piece is hand painted and has a collage of stickers layered as the face-mask. The piece is then aged with transparent BASK stencils applied on top. No two paintings are alike, and will be limited to only the 10 that are available here." - 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.
