COOL HUNTING

Basco

by Wendy Dembo in Culture on 27 February 2006

He goes by Vasco, Bazko, Vasko or Basco. At 20 years old he still has some time to figure out what his tag should be. But he doesn’t have that much time. Due to his success at the Upper Playground in association with Fifty24SF. The show opens Thursday, 2 March 2006 and runs through 1 April 2006.

Look for his simple yet expressive faces, body parts painted on wallpaper, and Aubrey Beardsley-like graphics used for skeletons and animals. The young Chilean likes to destroy buildings and walls in a traditional graffiti manner, but you would be smart to pick up one of his smaller paintings.

See more images after the jump.

Opening Reception: 2 March 2006, 7-9:30pm
