Exhibiting Artist: Bassa Aspinall (RSA)
Bassa Aspinall (b.1972) is a self-taught, contemporary urban pop artist, whose works have astonished and amazed the global art world. His visionary use of light, texture, colour - most remarkably with ultra violet and Italian ‘maimeri’ paints - on grand canvases create eye-catching reflections with three-dimensional perspectives. The mutability of position combined with the solidity of his archetypal colour-blocking commands great attention to his works. They become a centrifugal force, in every setting.
Bassa shies away from notoriety, but has a respect for the experiences of lineage. The art speaks for itself. But through his works you see the nuances of how the past leads to great artistic inspiration. Bassa is the youngest son of Lady Sarah Curzon Aspinall and the late John Aspinall, the zoo-keeper extraordinaire, wildlife conservationist and world famous gambling host.
Bassa’s artworks not only reflect the vivacity of animal life, but the passionate animosity of human experience. Gaining inspiration also from pop icons and culture, Bassa’s work is truly alive.
His works can be found hanging in private collections around the world. Bassa delights in the challenges from commissions, that inspire and express his skilful abilities, bringing to life all the dimensions of reality.
