Right off the bat, Brooklynite Gallery comes out swinging—- hitting a grand slam for its premiere show featuring new print works by the artist BAST. An opening reception will be held on Tuesday, June 10th 2008. The BAST print show will run from June 10th to July 12th, 2008.
The brand new Brooklynite Gallery is located in the Stuyvesant Heights neighborhood of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. As pioneers in the area, nothing is better than introducing the gallery to the art world than with the cutting-edge work of BAST. Internationally renowned and always ahead of the curve, BAST juxtaposes a raw street-edge sensibility, an eclectic montage of pop culture “confusion” and the boundaries of sex in his work.
This time around BAST’s new collection targets jewelry, or “bling” if you will, as he once again finds a new way to satisfy the eyes appetite for visual candy. As if his ironic pairing and displaced imagery wasn’t enough, or even the infusion of vibrant neon color schemes, the bar is once again raised with the sparkle and glitter of ornamentation.
