BAU King Pin

"BAU King Pin" 2008
I have got to find some way to work this into my painting
and maybe add Monkey Zombies.

all right, Fred, I have to admit that my education is woefully incomplete and I need to be brought up to speed. What is a BAU artist, anyway?

Business As Usual art?
Baryon Asymmetry of the Universe art?
Backward Adaptive Update art?

I'm in serious need of some clarification. . .

Love the paintings, by the way. . .

Well Mark, your first guess is the correct one...BAU Movement is a tongue-in-cheek play on the Bau Haus. The term "BAU" can be read as Business as Usual, and can also be read as work or building.

We are working with images and text (often stencils but not exclusively) to bridge poetry, propaganda, graffiti, some pop elements, and whatever else strikes us as urgent or cool.
