I met J. F. Bautista (BAP) towards the end of my tour of the Brooklyn Art Project headquarter.
Three of his paintings from the series Mutant Organic Architecture were seen at the office (the three black and white paintings on the left):
So what are they?
Artist description: this project is about the absolute mutation of our metropolis, reversing the process of evolution and turning things inside out. The end result is the unfolding of fantastic new architecture, and it draws whomever into the depths of a gigantic, dark, strange and absurd morphed grimy variegated skeletal, organic living reptilian defined as Organic Mutant Architecture or New York Modern in reverse.
Or if you prefer plain English like I do, here's a video of the artist talking about his own work:
J. F. Baustista is an architect by profession and he works with his paintings in his free time. His art and architecture portfolio can be seen at his web site at jfbart.com.
