Brooklyn based artist Bäst has been an intricate part of the street art scene for the past 10 years throughout New York and Europe, where his wheat-pasted images feature prominently across the urban landscape.
Interestingly the artist has remained an elusive character that has rarely been seen in public and whose very existence has been debated. Little is known of his work outside of what the public sees throughout New York’s urban environment, but fortunately, more has become known as Bäst’s images have evolved to gallery-exhibition status in recent years.
since 2003 his work has been in numerous group shows from Japan to LA, to Colorado, New York, London and Berlin, with his exposure quickly increasing. 2005 saw his first New York solo exhibition at the Transplant Gallery, which also celebrated the release of his limited edition book, REVOLUTION DE PAPEL.
