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. The artist’s richly textural work imbue his “anti-iconic,” sometimes satirical worldview with an undercurrent of dark emotion. Combining his graphic skill with his trademark multi-layered applications, Bask builds up the surface only to break down the image.
