Benjamin Oliver studied foundation at Jacob Kramer (Leeds) followed by a degree in Sculpture at the Brighton Faculty of the Arts. Never fully content with the confines of sculpture, Oliver learnt the art of film-making and a combination of the two set him on a path that has spanned his career. Back in Leeds in 1991, Oliver set about creating surreal films for the ever increasing number of party-people emerging during the 90′s. From humble beginnings (equipt with only one Super-8 projector), to setting up the North’s first, digital-video production studio, Oliver produced and directed films for the biggest club names in the region at the time: Vague and Back to Basics (Leeds), and The Paradise Factory (Manchester). “For me, a nightclub was akin to an art gallery. Each week I had the opportunity to exhibit new works on enormous walls and to a massive audience. I was in heaven”. Oliver was quickly discovered by The Faversham (an independent art gallery and nightclub in Leeds) and given the role of Artistic Director. Here, he was at liberty to simply; “Create”. Joining forces with The Divine David (Manchester based performance artist), Oliver went on to produce films that won them both national attention and a stream of TV production company commissions with Channel Four and Channel Five. In 2012, Benjamin relocated to the Lancashire coast to concentrate on the finer aspects of art once again. His latest works bring together art and light in sensory bliss. With a background firmly rooted in high impact visuals and a combination of traditional and digital media, Benjamin Oliver is attempting to re-align the modern art gallery experience.
