BAST: Devilwood

BAST: Devilwood BAST: Devilwood, August 25 - September 23, 2007 at New Image Art Gallery in West Hollywood, CA. "...BAST is an artist whose roots are as much tied to Brooklyn as rice is to China. He was raised on a healthy dose of break dance culture where the order of the day was learning from the streets and gaining fame by gracing its walls. With roots planted firmly in the pavement it is easy to see why destruction and precarious situations are often depicted in his work. The medium is often addressed the same way, treated as if it had been left out in the rain, then later beaten to a pulp for good measure - before being brought inside and nursed back to health.
BAST's work continually incorporates a smug sense of humor, twisted story lines and his own spin on Americana - in a 'gold front teeth' sort of way. Guns, grenades and Molotov cocktails are often waiting to be unleashed by a host of Disney and WB characters who seem to use their weapons as carelessly as kids use water balloons, often asking the question, 'What if cartoon characters ruled the world?'"

Hi Andrew -

Found your blog from halfway across the world today - late at night - through a google for mockingbird hill which tantalized me with its melody which I heard a few lines of on some late night movie trailer. So now that I've confused you thoroughly, let me just say thank you for the song - been listening to it for the last half hour...it's so delightful!

PS - interesting critique - I'm bookmarking your blog.

Поэзия – это самые лучшие слова, расставленные автором в идеальнейшем порядке. Поэзия – как воздух, который мы не замечаем, но им дышим, живем им, существуем благодаря ему… Этот сайт
– окошко в поэтический мир молодой девушки, целью которой всегда было творчество, а конкретно поэзия.
На моем сайте собраны мои уникальные стихи, которые писались мною на протяжении предыдущих лет и которыми я хочу поделиться со всеми желающими сейчас. Сегодняшний вечно куда-то спешащий и взбалмошный мир не оставляет нам ни минуты свободного времени, и мы постоянно забываем о душе, и заботимся все больше о ее бренной оболочке. А что является наиболее желанной пищей для души? Ну, естественно, поэзия. На моем поэтическом портале вы попадете в чарующий мир рифм и словесных хитросплетений, сможете снова услышать волшебную музыку стихотворений, затрагивающую самые сокровенные струны человеческой души.
Здесь я разместила все свои сборники со стихами, которые были написаны в различные периоды моей жизни. Вы можете не просто прочесть их онлайн-версию, но и скачать совершенно бесплатно. Я буду рада помочь вам познать неповторимый, волшебный, интригующий мир сегодняшней поэзии.
