About

A prominent figure among Salt Lake City painters, BASHA moved through many artistic styles until reaching his signature abstract style. A process that took twenty years. His abstract works are heavily influenced by the philosophy and balance of the Yin and Yang. In the contrast of black and white with monsters hiding in plain sight.

The style took twenty years to create, using a mixture of mediums that include spray-paint, oils and acrylics allows him to achieve the layers that have come to define his time-consuming works. His paintings have been in exhibitions including the Salt Lake Arts Festival and Park City Arts Festival in Utah. As well as exhibitions in California, Colorado, Nevada and Washington.
