Ben Nys' Profile

About

Ben Nys was born on the 16th of october 1970. As a child he was passioned by pure expressionistic forms as: images, tones, tunes and word. He combined these passions into poetry, music, film, design and lay-out. On this path he discovered the beauty and free expression of Art and Painting.

My paintings are as a moment, a fragment, they are created out of an irrational spontaneity within experiment and a direct feeling. The traditional techniques became a tool for creating his graphic and organic paintings. The series are as a constantly evolving vibe ... a path to the the midway between design and art, between sculptures and paintings.
In my paintings I like to work with little things I find in nature, as if my paintings make you rediscover the pure forms of nature. The sculptural forms are reflecting our constant need to change or to adapt ourself into a new phase ... through the layers of the paintings I tell little stories, stories of a daily live, stories from the past ... 'little stories boxed in a canvas'. Wanna discover them ... ?
