About this Art
"This piece, titled FREE REVOK is inspired by the current arrest of one of the most influential graffiti writers to ever pick up a can. As a fan and colleague, my respect for REVOK compelled me to action. 100% of the sales of the prints of this piece as well as the piece itself will be donated to Revoks legal troubles." - 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.
