Brooklyn, NY

BÄST was born and raised in Brooklyn. His wheat-pasted images have been displayed across urban landscapes worldwide. The anonymous street artist blended aspects of Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism into his contemporary hieroglyphics, using everything at his disposal in his Day-Glo-tinged visions — from cereal boxes to newspapers to scrap metal. Together with London artist Paul Insect, BÄST created the Fly Tip Theatre puppets, who were mutant puppet creations crafted from found and recycled materials over a period of close to 10 years, with characters often referencing music and graffiti culture and personas based loosely on celebrities, cartoons or those observed while people watched.
