Available Exclusively at 1xRUN and for the first time outside of the Notorious B.I.G & Tupac Shakur estates these two original paintings by BASK of these two legends are a must have for any hip-hop fan.

"This past November I worked on two commissioned paintings for Biggie and Tupac, one for each estate. The prints were then be sold at and a percentage went to the various charities that the estates are involved with. It’s a big deal, because there’s a lot of people that throughout the years have done paintings or portraits of Biggie and Tupac, you know, you walk into a mall and see a kiosk with somebody doing portraits from them to Humphrey Bogart to Marilyn Monroe. The differences with these were specifically commissioned by the estates, we were directly working with photographers of the shots. I’m a fan of both of those guys and it’s an honor to do something on the level and pay homage a bit." - BASK

On Saturday June 30th, 323East Gallery will host BASK's One Night Stand in Metro Detroit. This will also mark the debut of 1xRUN's very first hybrid exhibition opening where buyers can experience the art in person as well as from the comfort of their own home.

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.
