BÄST x The *TeaShed

I recently attended one of BÄST’s shows at the brilliant Outsiders art gallery down at the quayside in Newcastle. It was a mint exhibition. A bit about him ….

BÄST’s ‘Scenario del Rio’ is the legendary street artist’s first ever exhibition in Newcastle upon Tyne. BÄST is not unlike his work – unabashed, colourful, streetwise and stream-of- consciousness. “I love… vintage airline promotional material. The new workʼs obviously got a lot of that style. Itʼs quite simple, I never like to go too heavy on anything. The paintʼs thrown on with stencils over it. Itʼs a mess but it works itself out. I want these pieces to be like a phony story, complete in one scene, from which you can make up whatever you want. Even I end up looking at them and wondering where they came from. Theyʼre scenarios, hence the title ʻScenario Del Rioʼ. The ʻDel Rioʼ is a diner off Cheapskate Bay which has all sorts of folks coming in and out, they must have some scenarios going on. Plus,” he says in his broad New York accent, “I chose it because I love words that roll off the tongue.”

He was kind enough to put a couple of his wicked stencils on some *TeaShed products in exchange for some yummy tea …

Thanks so much BÄST!!

Love *TS
