A few words about the artist Basin:
"Black drawing on a brown surface. Minimalist Art, with a very few details and a lot of lyricism. And so beautiful that it hurts. Here is the thinnest border between the meaning and the meaningless. Here, from the dark greatness shines the image of a woman. Hidden sensuality and erotica." (Gideon Efrat)
