Gary Baseman has described "pervasive" artists as those that "use every outlet at their means- art galleries, print, tv, film... even commerce- to infuse their vision deeper into the fabric of contemporary life." He and fellow collaborator and artist, Tim Biskup, will have their first museum exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum in Laguna Beach, this Sunday, June 18th.
You'll probably recognize Baseman's distinct illustrations, as they've graced countless magazine covers and editorials, as well as his own ABC-TV children's Saturday morning cartoon "Teacher's Pet." Tim Biskup has been creating character driven designs since the mid-80's and also launched the clothing line Gamma-Go, as well as opening the Bispop Gallery in Old Town Pasadena. Both Los Angeles natives, this exhibit will explore how Baseman and Biskup are blurring the lines between fine art, toy culture and other forms of media. This exhibit's major sponsor is OC mega surf brand, Hurley. The exhibit runs through September 24th.
