Visenga Arts, Suffolk, England Member Since April 2010 Artist Statement Benjamin was born in Bristol, England where he spent the first 11 years of his life. He enjoyed drawing at a young age but was never very serious about it. When he was 11 he moved to Suffolk where he went on to take Art GCSE as well an A-level in Art and Photography graded "A" in both.
Not feeling entirely comfortable with trying to recreate exactly what he saw around him, he instead considered the world in terms of colours and feelings, shapes and movements and themes that make up our consciousness.
The art isn't in the paint and the canvas, but what you feel when you look at it.
