Bast Pokes Fun at Hipsters (Because No one else does…)

February 16th, 2012 | By | 1 Comment »

For Bast‘s latest print release with The Outsiders at Lazarides the artist has chosen to target the butt of recent jokes in London- Dalston. Home to the many hipster knobheads that run around claiming benefits and puking on doorsteps, the print entitled Dalston Unitooth looks at a fictitious world where the hipsters of Europe and the USA come together. One of the same breed, the print is amusing if you get it, but aesthetically is an explosion of color gone awry and a paint by numbers theme that is touched upon and lost immediately. Eh, at least it is a bit different. Can’t knock something for being a bit different. I’ll take a change of pace rather the same old stuff nowadays.

The print is available from today at The Outsiders or online and is a print in 21 colors as an edition of 10 for £500.

    Alternate interpretation (which sort of ignores the name of the piece): A perfect piece about the 1% who party and drink tea while the country falls apart, which of course will end up in the homes of members of the 1% for them to view while hosting parties and drinking tea.
