Artist Bio | BenG
10 Years in Asia and a 15 year career in VFX have played key roles in developing and shaping artist known as BenG. With a fierce passion for technically challenging craftsmanship, and driven by the frustration of dwindling satisfaction associated with working on large client projects, Beng began exploring other avenues to fuel his creative enthusiasm. Inspired by artists like Blek Le'Rat, Banksy and Shepard Fairey, in 2010 Beng began exploring narrative in his own works, and at the same time invested countless hours learning the craft of screen printing. Armed with fresh enthusiasm, a new craft and a decade of creative and cultural experiences BenG set out to produce artworks work that comment on the society and social influences we all deal with today.
