We’re having a lot of fun with our limited editions this week at The Bare Square!
Jason Woodside is a prolific artist that has been working with nAscent for quite a while now. His work is colorful, fun, and insanely well executed. His clean lines and brushwork are simply flawless.
The piece shown above, called The Illest, shows two original characters created by Jason: Frank & his French brother, Franc.
These characters show their faces in a number of Jason’s paintings. The Illest uses a bold, pleasing color pallete and incorporates the organic, the industrial, the illustrative, and the graphic to create a brilliant work of art. We’re proud to have The Illest as Jason’s inaugural print at The Bare Square Store.
The original painting has generated a LOT of inquiries, so we just had to release The Illest at The Bare Square Store. At the moment, the original is available (but we’re sure it won’t be for long), and is hanging in our Chelsea location. Contact us to schedule a viewing. Meanwhile, limited editions of The Illest are exclusively available at The Bare Square Store starting at just $20!
In keeping with the theme of fun this week, At Least We Don’t Have Cockroaches by Gigi Chen couldn’t be more fantastic.
Gigi told me this was her “panda piece”. Well these snuggly guys have completely taken over! Gigi creates amazing characters and imbues them with a very unique spirit.
Gigi has an animation background from The School of Visual Arts here in New York City. She was chosen by Jeffrey Deitch of MOCA (formerly of Deitch Projects) to be in the cast of eight “up and coming” artists in a 2006 art documentary series called ArtStar.
FLASH! Tomorrow, look for a special weekend edition of The Bare Square–you won’t want to miss it!
SECOND FLASH! Next week is Social Media Week in New York City. Please join our fan page on Facebook and spread the word! (If we reach our goal of 800 fans by Thursday night, we’ll have a special promotion for everyone!)
