About

Benjamin Craven is inspired by everyday sights and occurrences, from the bright colours of the supermarket cleaning aisle, to architectural collisions - high, low, and all around. The surroundings of everyday life are his constant source of inspiration, and through his work he sets out to encourage the viewer to appreciate the playfulness in art and life.  From screen-printing to digital, Benjamin Craven uses different techniques to create a bold signature style. The heavy use of geometric lines gives order to what appears to be a haphazard array of clashing colours and patterns, resulting in end designs that are anything but accidental. Influenced by everyday textures, Craven creates individual hand composites and structured surfaces, as well as screen-prints, from reclaimed wood in many of his pieces.
