PERVASION: THE ART OF BASEMAN & BISKUP
by Jamie E17
Los Angeles natives Gary Baseman and Tim Biskup are Pervasive artists, as defined by Gary Baseman, use every outlet at their means – art galleries, print, TV, film, lecture halls, and even commerce – to infuse their vision deeper into the fabric of contemporary life.
Pervasion explores how both artists are at the forefront of blurring the lines between fine art, toy culture and other forms of media. Each has created unique characters that originate within densely packed imagery found in their paintings and sculptures, such as Baseman’s Toby, or Biskup’s Helper. These characters then become motifs that appear on clothing, in books, as toys, and even on animated cartoons.
