Last Days to see BÄST's "Scenario del Rio" @ Outsiders, NewcastleJuxtapoz // Thursday, 13 Oct 2011
We are always intrigued with what NYC-based artist BÄST is working on, and he has a solo show at The Outsiders in Newcastle, England that comes down this Saturday, October 15. The show continues his love for vintage airline promotional material. Wonder if he likes that new "Pan-Am" show?
BÄST says of the Scenario del Rio exhibition, “I love... vintage airline promotional material. The new work?s obviously got a lot of that style. It?s quite simple, I never like to go too heavy on anything. The paint?s thrown on with stencils over it. It?s a mess but it works itself out. I want these pieces to be like a phony story, complete in one scene, from which you can make up whatever you want. Even I end up looking at them and wondering where they came from. They?re scenarios, hence the title ?Scenario Del Rio?. The ?Del Rio? is a diner off Cheapskate Bay which has all sorts of folks coming in and out, they must have some scenarios going on. Plus,” he says in his broad New York accent, “I chose it because I love words that roll off the tongue.”
