Gritty Street Art From BASK: Because Art Should Kill

"Each cryptic piece represents a struggle I have faced or continue to battle." -Bask

And it shows- the chaos of these pieces lend to their beauty: the clashing colors and mismatched patterns lead the eye through a visual journey of sorts, a journey without ending.

These Paintings Are The Neatest and Most Beautiful Tangled Messes

Color separation guys, holy shit. It’s like this man has a palatte application built into his brain. Explosively colorful, neat and chaotic in tandem: these pieces are golden brown and made just right.

Incredible, Transcendent Collage Art From The Heart Of Kenya

These incredible, forms are a cross between Frankenstein’s Monster and fertility figures from an ancient and sacred people. The earth tones seem to be a representation of the earthly power of the women, while the violent reds depict the struggles of women against violence, oppression, and alienation. Interestingly, she creates these ethereal and archaic forms from modern beauty magazines, perhaps some of the biggest perpetrators of the lie of “ideal beauty”.

From the artist herself: “Females carry the marks, language and nuances of their culture more than the male. Anything that is desired or despised is always placed on the female body.” I’ll be looking out for Ms. Mutu in future, and so should you.
