The Skull Fence artwork was painted on a new canvas - one made of wood, focusing on texture and layering. Al Baseer Holly (ABH) worked on evoking a playful emotion, with the pop colors of pink, light blue, and white.
Man With A Vision
ABH emulates Picasso’s painting techniques and Basquiat’s illustrations with his own personal flair. Picasso is also seen in the illustrations wearing a Basquiat crown. The brain in skull is a visual interpretation of the mind, to feel the most out of life while you still can.
Artist and founder Al Baseer Holly (ABH) paints the Skull Drip including his famous brain in skull illustrations. Changing things up he also adds a skeleton in the painting, creating a whole body. In this artwork he paints first a black background and layers wording in colors purple, orange, yellow, green and white.
I WANT MY ROSES
Al-Baseer Holly (ABH) portrays the little time we have on this planet. The artwork depicts ABH’s signature skull, representing its what’s beneath our skin, “zoom” wording to signify how short and precious life is. The brain within the skull symbolizes the mind and the ability to feel emotions. “I want my roses while I can smell them,” is a literature phrase meaning I want to feel love and appreciate it while I still can. The exuberant amount of color and texture depicts the beauties of life.
In his first ever Self Portrait Al Baseer Holly (ABH) focuses on himself and a new form of painting, highlighting more on the oranges, greens, and reds. Comparing himself today to his childhood self, ABH reflects on his abstract mind throughout his life. He wanted to display this with the abstract art behind and within himself. A representation of how he thinks, always creating new ideas and works.
