Best known for his expressionist style and highly detailed figurative paintings, the American artist Hernan Bas (b. 1978, Miami), weaves mythology, classical poetry, literature and the paranormal into adolescent adventures with the young male figure as a prominent subject throughout. Working through the mediums of painting, video and installation, Bas investigates themes of desire, inquisition and obsession, with influences ranging from the Romantic era of the 18th century to the Decadent movement of the 19th Century and addresses topics such as LGBTQIA+ activism, politics, the occult and conspiracy theories.
