Hernan Bas is an American artist born in 1978 in Miami. Inspired by literary sources, Bas paints boys on the threshold of sexual self-discovery.
Hernan Bas is known for his overgrown landscapes and intimate figurative portraits of beautiful boyish and hip young men. With a style that is energetic and gestural, his work nods to abstract expressionism yet remains contemporary in feel. His pieces are romantic and often uncompromisingly sexual, with dark narratives or open landscapes. A soft palette is met with the gorgeous contrast of unpredicted dark hues and vibrant colors, while his loose brushwork creates intricate textures
He graduated in 1996 from the New World School of the Arts in Miami.
