Hernan Bas's Romantic Nihilism.

The Detroit-based contemporary artist, Hernan Bas explores the codes of dandyism and its subculture as a means to define sexual attraction. His paintings are tinged with nihilist romanticism, born of literary intrigue and a passion for historical painting. Small, frail and sensuously delightful, Bas's paintings personify epic romance embracing both the decadence and nastiness of pleasure. His highly influential work can be found in numerous private and public collections worldwide and at the moment is exhibited in London, Miami and New York.
