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.
