(born 1957 Prilep, Macedonia)
Basheski graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Skopje in 1988. He became Professor of Sculpture there in 2010. His work deals with the imponderability of life and the challenges of human existence. He portrays people in emotional situations that go far beyond the normal. To heighten the emotional force of his work he plays with size. The fact that he chooses to make his sculptures oversized gives them an appearance of unassailability, which at the same time, paradoxically makes them also seem more vulnerable, hesitant and consumed by doubt. He work makes it apparent to us that there is a direct connection between a person’s inner life and their external appearance.
