Studio Sundays: Ben Willis

Studio Sundays: Ben Willis

Happy Sunday! We were lucky enough to feature the work of Ben Willis in our first issue, but after seeing his latest paintings, we just had to share again. The series titled "Candy Man" is brilliantly photographed against gorgeous landscapes and takes his colorful artwork outside of the expected white studio. 

Check out his instagram for amazing process videos. 

Ben Willis is an artist working in Tempe, Arizona. He was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and moved to Arizona to pursue his Master’s of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing from the Herberger Institute for Design an the Arts, School of Art at Arizona State University.

Since graduating in 2013, Willis has been investigating patterning through the use of geometry, color relationships, layering and texture. His latest body of work is technically significant in that it presents the artists desire to consistently evolve his practice by re-inventing and expanding his visual language.
