Join us as {9} Collective presents its first featured guest artist, Benjam, January 5th and 19th, 6-10 PM.

«As an artist, I strive to create paintings that speak about the beauty that exists in images of the past. The contrast of old-meets-new has always interested me, so I draw inspiration from past designs, ideas, and innovations exhibited in a new light on my canvas. The challenge, as with any reconstructed image from the past, is to capture it in all its former glory and give those images life in a modern world through my vision.»

About the Artist: Benjam is an American artist based out of Arizona. He gained an early appreciation for art during his childhood while watching his father and grandmother paint with oils. Benjam is a dichotomy. He studied the art of classical antiquity and European masters during his university studies, but always held a fascination for hip-hop culture, graffiti, and the evolution of street art. In 2014, he began experimenting with stencils and that ultimately led to the production of his own multilayered artwork. Over the last three years he has dedicated himself to learning to cut intricate stencils to create the most detailed depictions of his subjects. Since then, Benjam has shown his work extensively with solo and groups exhibitions in the Phoenix area, as well as the UK and Australia. He is a 2017 TLC Community Foundation Grant recipient and a finalist of the 2017 Stencil Art Prize, a prestigious international stencil art competition based out of Australia.
