BASTARDARTIST presents: NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES

NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES is a collection of interviews gathered from 2011 to current.
A peek into a life that is beautiful and destructive. Mr. BASTARDARTIST finds beauty in the hideous.

Marco Romano Bhimani (aka Bastard Artist) is a Los Angeles based fine-art photographer, known locally for his stylized portrait work with LA’s underground hip-hop artists, punks, graffiti writers, gang-bangers, street racers, and all the disassociated dissidents aimlessly meandering through the undercurrents of LA’s urbanized shrouded street.

Marco began shooting video and documentary portraiture over 20 years ago and hasn’t stopped since. He has aimed his artistic sights to a revealing and unflinching glance of the gritty rawness of uninhibited flesh, pushing the protruding lens into the subversive while riding the fine line between art and misanthropy.

Alexandra-Paige Stahle: Comfortably numb

I had the opportunity to interview a twenty-one year old young lady named Alexandra-Paige Stahle.

Alex told me about drifting through life comfortably numb, overcoming excessive drug use and witnessing her closest friend succumb to addiction and die as a result.

Learning about her life was compelling, eye-opening and jaw-dropping.
