ABOUT THIS ART:

This piece is ready to hang.


"I've had the idea to make a multi level version of this piece for a while now. I wanted to raise the bar even further by doing multiple versions of this concept instead of just one.

I first did version of this painting back in 2004 as a gift for a close friend of mine. And most recently/notably I was commissioned by Robert Downey Jr. to recreate a 15ft tall version for Iron Man 3. But in between those, I've done several versions that always present this piece in a new and original way. This release is a direct example of that. I wanted to dissect the elements and create a piece that is brought together layer by layer, level by level."

My assistant and I have been working 10 hour days for the past 10 days getting these built, painted and assembled. The materials used were fence posts, plywood cut down to size and worked over with latex, enamel, spray-paint and mixed media collage. Every section of this piece was individually painted and processed over 6 time, and the Bomb was processed over 10 times to achieve the smooth but textured look I wanted." - 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.

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

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.
