DISCLAIMER: SOME OF THE IMAGES IN THIS SLIDESHOW DEPICT GRAPHIC NUDITY.

For a small liberal arts college without much of a reputation as a visual arts school, Colorado College has been home to some fantastic student artists in recent years such as Blaise Larmee and Streeter Wright among quite a few others.

Basil Kincaid is another with great promise. He has a show up of his recent drawings at the Whitney Electric building (at the back of the parking lot just south of Wooglin’s at Tejon and Cache La Poudre) that you can see today through Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m.

We spoke with Basil (which you can hear) about his art (which you can see) in the slide show above.

(Please leave some feedback, please. You can do so below in the comments or by emailing us at thebigsomething@krcc.org. Thanks!)

    Yuck. generic nakedness doesn’t bother me at all, but this stuff is offensive to me as a woman. It looks like fantasy doodles on the inside of an angry high school guy’s notebook.

  2. Sandra says:

    Some see art…some only see a booty hole. I think his work is brilliant. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. Nancy Atherton says:

    I’d rather hear Basil speak than look at his art. There’s a strange disconnect between his laid-back, positive outlook and the grotesque, distorted images he produces.

    Deva Crouch is another recent CC grad/art major who has a great show of drawings up at Heebee Jeebee’s right now. She is super talented and also very skilled at poker, which is how she has been making her living the last few years. http://tinyurl.com/28nuldf

    Beautiful work. I love it- thanks Noel and Basil!

  6. Basil says:

    Basil, your art is amazingly detailed and creative, it also stimulate thinking. Darrell wanted me to convey that he is very proud of you. Peace & Blessings. (Dad)

    –>> .. Provocative in it’s simple purpose –

    there’s nothing wrong with that.

    This city needs more artists like Basil.
