Hernan Bas

b. 1978, Miami, FL, USA. Hernan Bas is a Miami and Detroit-based artist who creates expressionist and highly detailed figurative paintings. His young protagonists inhabit a fantasized world of implicit eroticism and ambiguous sensuality. Always appearing as if suspended in time, between adolescence and adulthood, they embody a fragile in-between state that the artist refers to as “fag limbo.” With a flamboyant palette and a refined touch, Bas revisits and reinterprets the various categories of classical painting from a homoerotic perspective that is seemingly melancholic yet often humorous and witty.
