Project Description

Maxim Bashev

Born in 1961 in Moscow. Graduated from the Moscow Art School N.1. Since 1986 has participated in exhibitions, notably in Russia, Ukraine, Germany, USA. His works are in the private collections in Russia, USA, Germany. Lives and works in Moscow. Max Bashev is an extraordinary person and a true artist by his mission and profession. He possesses a delicate feeling, a deep philosophical look and a sense of humour that gives him an ability to create recognizable works in his characteristic author’s manner of performance. Max’s works are unique for Russian art-market, there is no influence of Russian traditional art school, his works absorbed the best and the most interesting features from the great masters of the past like Velasquez, Leonardo, Picasso, Vermeer, El Greco. He is inspired by Basquiat, Keith Haring and all the protest culture that they embody. In this culture the esthetic terror to society that wants to sleep and to see dreams, wants the quiet prosiness, but not the disturbing images, reminding of real problems is reflected. Bashev in his works transmits similar energy. His painting is close to New York of 80s, to the interventions of underground in not conventional art space. For the last 7 years Max has been taken active parts in different international and Russian art fairs. In 2007 two of his works were sold at Sotheby’s in the Chicago representation of the auction house. Funds from sale were allocated to the Mexican children. In 2012 in Sotheby’s auction in Moscow Bashev’s another work were sold. In 2010 at Chicago Art Fair during the first day some more pictures were acquired by representatives of Chicago establishment. There Maxim receives an invitation for joint collaboration from a famous architect and sculptor John David Mooney, who is a live legend of architecture in America.
