Benjamin Moore — Recent Works
Posted on July 16, 2012
Benjamin Moore works across traditional representations and street art in his painting, commenting on contemporary, inner city culture.
My work as a whole, comments on contemporary culture occurring in the inner city. It emphasises the contrast between that which is established and that which is regarded as “the new”. My interest is in aligning traditional realistic representation with images and compositional innovations derived from street art. I am interested in the inner city phenomenon. That is, the changing nature of inner city values, landscape and people. Visually my art aims to capture the detail of traditional architecture whilst providing a fantasy of the idiosyncratic nature of the inner city and its dwellers.
