Recently transplanted from Miami to Detroit's east side, internationally acclaimed Hernan Bas makes paintings that explore the world of the dandy. Baroque, abstract, narrative, concise, and epic, his work address issues of identity and personifies the adolescent males that inhabit them. Bas will discuss his newest body of work, made in Detroit.

The Rubell Family Collection (Miami, FL) presented a decade of the artist's work that traveled to the Brooklyn Museum of Art in February 2008.  Other exhibitions include: the Nordic Pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale; Frederick Snitzer Gallery, Miami FL; Peter Kilchman, Zurich, Switzerland; the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburg PA; and the Museio de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon (MUSAC).
