Taking a Look at Ben Heine

One day last year, I caught sight of Ben Heine’s humorous and clever Pencil Vs Photography works during a daily perusal of StumbleUpon.  Though I was entertained by the precision and creativity of the work, I entirely forgot about it until recently.  At the time, I had no idea who the artist was, or the fact that his work extended beyond pencil and paper into a colorful multidisciplinary portfolio of ongoing creativity.

His latest project, “Flesh and Acrylic”, is eye-catchingly thoughtful as the human body becomes one with the canvas.  These works move beyond body painting to attain an air of acute contemplation within a vibrant assembly of energy.

His projects ranging from photography to painting are ones that I wish I had seen during my first glimpse into Heine’s work.  With inspirations cultivated from expressionism, surrealism and pop art, it’s definitely worth taking a second, third, and forth look at.
