Biography Eli Levin
Eli Levin, A.K.A., Jo Basiste
Eli renamed himself in the 90's after his maternal grandfather. After finishing school in New York, he eventually moved to Santa Fe where he has been ever since. Today Levin/Basiste is still best known for his bar, dance-hall, art-scene and other many-figured scenes of social commentary. Levin's works are not realism in any sense, but rather satirical and expressionistic, with deliberate distortion of form and color for emotional effect. Levin/Basiste has had many exhibits.
