Faile and Bast - Deluxx Fluxx Arcade at Brooklyn Museum

Faile and Bast – Deluxx Fluxx Arcade at Brooklyn Museum

Thank the lord for mind-blowing art exhibits.  The Brooklyn Museum has one that is sure to make your head explode.  It is by street artists FAILE (and BAST) and it’s called “Savage/Sacred Young Minds.”  It consists of 3 parts:  canvases by FAILE, the Deluxx Fluxx Arcade (with BAST) and Temple.  I’ll quickly take you through each one.

FAILE

Faile

If you live in New York, you’ve surely seen FAILE’s art on the streets (and they’ve put it up in many other cities in the world).  The above picture is not a great representation, but if you look closely at their works (use Google!), there are so many things going on in each painting.  Intricate phrases, imagery and other worlds exist in each work and you could spend hours looking at just one painting without getting bored.

Next is the Deluxx Fluxx Arcade.  A literal arcade with Faile/Bast art lining the walls, so with that alone, you could be in there for days just staring at all the millions of things going on in each work, but if there were “only” all that going on, it wouldn’t be enough.  So add to that, about 30 video game machines that also feature the art of Faile/Bast that are fully playable, and rather than just being normal arcade games, they are all one of a kind games featuring their art.  Once again, it would be really cool if the arcade stopped there, but alas, you go into the next room which is bathed in black light!

If your head hasn’t exploded by the time you reach this room, I don’t think we can be friends!

So after you’ve picked your brain up off the floor from exploding, this exhibit is not done yet!

Finally, a temple in ruins, entitled “Temple,” is housed in an atrium of the museum and like everything you’ve seen in the exhibit, there’s a million things going on.

These pictures don’t do this art justice, so make sure you head down to the Brooklyn Museum to see this amazing exhibit. FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds runs through October 4, 2015 and should not be missed!  Click here for more information.
