b. 1994. phoenix, arizona.
artist, designer. owner/director of belhaus + bones fc.

belassen’s work derives from an affinity with minimalism + abstraction, echoing a process he refers to as subtle over sound. this idea references the physically intensive layering process involved in his work, while also hinting at his internal desire to simply communicate a message or feeling. deceptive in their simplicity, his paintings convey depths of meaning through handwritten, oft-cryptic words, and abstract imagery scratched through a drying surface, revealing a glimpse into the chaos that lives inside. they reflect the duality of the human condition, marking moments in his personal life + story that only he can truly comprehend.
