We all know the best personal projects out there start with a crazy idea, a ton of ambition and a spark of imagination. Now think about this: what it would be like to put your heart and soul into creating one amazing, eye-candy poster every day for an entire year? That’s how Baugasm was born, the self-driven project by graphic designer Vasjen Katro.

If Bauhaus and contemporary art could have a baby, it would be called “Baugasm”. Luckily this baby exists and keeps on growing thanks to Vasjen Katro, a visual artist born in Korcë, Albania, who has been successfully inducing us one eye-gasm per day since 2016. 365 days a year, two years completed already without missing a single day. So we can definitely say that “crazy” would be kind of an understatement at this point, right? Crazy good, that is!

Vibrant colors, carefully chosen textures, 3D art, tasteful gradients, distorted typography and even a bit of animation - Vasjen combines all these and more in a series of eye-candy posters that are worthy of being showcased in every home and gallery in this world.

Vasjen Katro is now based in Tirana and he just can’t stop creating. So, naturally, we just can’t help but be genuinely amazed. Other than his world-famous poster series, Vasjen works on both print and web graphic projects over at Fabric Creative, a digital studio in Albania, where he is a co-founder and creative director.

So we only have one conclusion: give the people one kick-ass poster per day and you’ll leave them wanting more. And more. And more. Vasjen Katro will delight us with his presence this year as he’s seriously one of the few people out there that can teach us about ambition, being constant and finding that endless pound of inspiration that all of us are looking for.
