Bash Bio Sebastian Carlo Moreno (Bash) is an East Coast Artist who was born in Miami but developed most of his art skills in New York. For five years he carried a sketchbook everywhere capturing nature through various lenses and surfaces. As a self-taught artist with a disruptive way of thinking, Bash navigates his work from graffiti and street-art to 3D printing and acrylic painting. His curiosity and adventurous lifestyle led him to explore different forms of art styles throughout his career. Having an always-evolving mindset, Bash crafted his own unique form of expression. “My work is what I see around me amplified and not contained by the reality in which we exist. The offering, like a kaleidoscope, is always presenting something new to be seen within”, defines the artist. Shifting gears After a short stint exploring the Bay Area, Bash decided to venture down to SoCal, where his art transcended and found him at his most creative and productive period so-far. Bash has always had a desire to expand art access and create unique experiences for people. As a versatile artist, he has broadened his presence on different platforms, including the solo exhibition “Be Here Now” (Bay Area, California, 2020) and online exhibitions [Kleefeld Contemporary (2020) and Linus Galleries (2018)]. His work has also been featured at the global marketing agency Lewis, in San Diego, California, (2019); as well as group showings at Viento Y Agua Gallery, in Long Beach (2019); Huntington Beach Art Center (2019); Las Laguna Gallery, in Laguna Beach, California (2017); and at the Suckulent show at The Love Hacienda, in Los Angeles (2018). Currently, Bash is based in Long Beach, California, where he lives with his wife. He can often be seen by the Belmont Pier where he loves to watch and listen to the waves and recharge. Wandering in nature is one of his many passions, as can be seen in many of his pieces. Bash is inspired by the living world we inhabit, both the massive and microscopic, our bodies, cells, trees, flowers, the oceans & it’s creatures, clouds in the sky, and the cosmos that all resides within.0
