Gary Baseman’s unique work is iconic on its own, seemingly without intro. You’ve seen it before, even though you don’t know it. He’s dubbed his work as “pervasive art” which “blurs the lines between fine art and commercial art.” Thanks to this new art form, others have followed suit in art and design industries across the board, including our very own Shepard Fairey.
Baseman has been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Time, L.A. Times, and Rolling Stone. He was also the designer behind the board game “Cranium” and the original creator of the award-winning Disney cartoon, “Teacher’s Pet”. He has exhibited in galleries all over the world, in eight countries that span the continents. His work has been described as “playful and dark”.
