(excerpt from interview of Bakshi by Miller for BOMB Magazine)

"...I like that, Miller! I’m dead serious about this: who we are, who we used to be, what we’ve been through, what we’ve become—it’s very important. We’re all part of a long trail. The scene in Heavy Traffic where the mother is walking through the photographs looking at her uncles—my family’s up there. My ancestors. Faded walls, old wood, old paint—every fleck of paint is another story, not to be discarded..."

What’s Happening

We have begun a separation process of Ralph Bakshi Art from Bakshi Productions, Inc. online.  

It might be a little confusing at first - but you will get the hang of it - I believe in all of your learning curves to be as strong as ever.  And this way we (hopefully) can streamline the art to you where you want to see it - when you want to see it.  

 

So here it is:

Ralph Bakshi Art is now at :

www.ralphbakshi.com 

 

Ralph Bakshi Films is now at:

www.bakshistudio.com

 

Change is sometimes slow going at first - but always welcome ...especially with new seasons.  Happy Fall to you all and sending much gratitude and Thank You to  you guys who are sending in your requests, signing up for newsletters, and digging the art. Enjoy! - V

 

BAKSHI AT HOME

Here is another of my favorite photos of Bakshi in New Mexico. Taking a coffee break from his studio, you can find him in discussions about the state of the world, the artists on his mind at the moment, his current pieces being worked on.  It is never a dull moment.  And don't try to small talk or he will call bullshit and go back to the studio.  He wants to know your real thoughts and opinions...from everyone.  So be ready to be honest and no bs.  Its not easy - but the challenge is real and exciting and there is almost always a Bakshi perspective walk-away that floats in your mind for a while after the conversation has ended.    - T
