BENJAMIN THOMAS TAYLOR
Benjamin Thomas Taylor creates artwork that opens up a sense of possibility within the viewer, like a child walking into a sweet shop. Since his first exhibition in 2015, Benjamin’s work has been bought by collectors worldwide.
Growing up in the rural spaces of Snowdonia, but spending much of his creative life in the city, Benjamin’s work is full of playful juxtapositions. Flat blocks of colour surround diagrams of numbers and lines, areas of text are embedded in alpine landscapes, detailed painted objects are cast within vast areas of empty space and appropriated imagery is placed within original compositions. The end result is a kind of romantic Pop Art.
Benjamin’s work has also been commissioned by brands including Nike, Atlantic Records, Paolo Nutini and Rough Trade.
The series Still Life is an attempt to illustrate the simple, visual pleasure of inanimate objects.
