Ales Bask Hostomsky has a brilliant ability to mix American icons with harsh realities. His work makes statements by leaps and bounds.
From the site:
The artistâ€™s richly textural work imbue his â€œanti-iconic,â€ sometimes satirical worldview with an undercurrent of dark emotion. His canvases are the cityâ€™s flotsam and jetsam of industrial and consumer decay. Combining his graphic skill with his trademark multi-layered applications, Bask builds up the surface only to break down the image. “My art is a type of deconstruction,” says Bask, “I try to focus on the imperfection of things, rather then their unachievable perfection.”
