As we mentioned in our recent feature on Bäst’s collaboration with Greek olive oil brand Eléia, he has a show opening this week at the Opera Gallery in New York. Fans of one of Brooklyn’s best will have an opportunity to grab a bottle of their own (limited quantities) Thursday night (September 13th) at the private reception as well as take in the new body work – Germs Tropicana. This solo will put somewhat of a new direction from the street collagist on display described as “Abstract Expressionism meets Pop-Art” in pieces similar to “giant petri dishes where his text and pop iconography, aka germs, take over the canvas.”
