” This is not a painting it is a message ”
Born in 1987 – BASM is a street artist and mixed media artist dedicated to urban art style, his works varies from purely aesthetic to intense socio-political commentary about the world. He thinks that the urban art offers new ways of seeing and feeling the world differently.” The street art started from the suburbs of the cities, where people were eager to be ‘heard’, it was important that their message to be noticed, which is why I prefer to talk less about my works and leave my art to talk about itself. Any musical instrument can make beautiful sounds, but accompanied by a voice & lyrics … those sounds pass the barrier of the eardrum and advance into people’s minds, the same goes for art.”
As we speak, hundreds of works signed by BASM can be found in collectors’ houses around the world.
