‘Ahwroo’ is a Polystone Sculpture by contemporary artist Gary Baseman. Hand painted, the piece is from a limited edition of 300.

Contemporary artist and designer Gary Baseman is the face of the self-coined ‘Pervasive Art’ movement, a school that seeks to collapse the boundaries between so-called high and low-brow visual cultures. Always breaking barriers, Basemen’s work frequently stages off-kilter combinations, juxtaposing the childish beside the adult, the religious against the irreverent, and the familiar with the unexpected.

Meet ‘Ahwroo’, a little sculptural monkey-cum-demon-cum-Prince of Denmark. Holding a skull aloft, Ahwroo makes like Hamlet and contemplates this memento mori, his eyes wide with cartoon curiosity. Brilliantly imaginative, Baseman treads the uncanny line between cutesy and dark - there’s something at once loveable and freakish about the figure of Ahwroo, musing on his own mortality. The result? An utterly compelling work of contemporary art.
