  • Catalogue Essay

    Hernan Bas currently lives and works in Detroit, Michigan. He completed his art studies at the New School of Art in Miami, Florida. Bas creates works born of literary intrigue and tinged with nihilistic romanticism and old-world imagery. Influenced by the Aesthetic and Decadent writers of the 19th century, in particular Oscar Wilde and Joris-Karl Huysman, Bas’s works weave together stories of adolescent adventures and the paranormal with classical poetry, religious stories, mythology and literature.
