About Benjamin Garcia
Benjamin Garcia was born in Caracas (Venezuela) in 1986. His work is the result of a meditative process through painting. The images he constructs are developed through intuition and results in profoundly symbolic portraits that play with movement, transformation and color. So far, fascinated by the female subject, his artworks explore ideas about the contrast between beauty and violence. While the main message of his work is something he likes to leave to the interpretation of viewers, Ben admits that the physical breakdown of the human subject in his paintings is a reflection of the disintegration of the psyche trough time.
