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.
