DESCRIPTION

MOAH is honored to bring the artwork of multitalented and internationally celebrated artist Gary Baseman to the Antelope Valley. Born and raised in Hollywood, the artist crosses many disciplines as a painter, illustrator, video and performance artist, animator, TV/movie producer, curator, and toy designer.  His artwork captures the bittersweet realities of life: playful yet vicious, naughty but nice and always telling a story layered with the pleasures and pain that life brings across generations. Baseman’s work has been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Time Magazine, and Rolling Stone; and he designed the best-selling game "Cranium."  The Los Angeles Times has described his art as "adorably perverse," humorously playful and dark, childlike but often with adult themes.  His fine art has been displayed in galleries and museums in Brazil, Germany, Israel, Italy, Russia, and throughout the United States.
