Our Featured Artist of the Week!

He's one of Miami's most celebrated Artists, and he's out and proud:  Hernan Bas.

Hernan Bas was born in 1978 in Miami. A graduate of The New World School of the Arts in Miami, his work has been seen in many solo and group shows and is held in private and public collections throughout the US including the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

With a style all his own, Hernan Bas' works seem to hold an 18th century style combined with 19th century dandyism and Goth.    He counts 'The Hardy Boys', boy scout manuals, youth culture and fashion layouts as inspiration.

Bas has said he wishes his painting to speak directly to his audience.  Especially his early work which is influenced by his own experiences of being gay.   During an interview with Edition Copenhagan, Bas said, "My art is always going to be queer in some way simply because of my interests---it probably has that sensibility but I would not want to end up in an art historic gay champter, I would like my art to touch on universal matters."
