Evermade - Benjamin Craven - "Sun & Elements", 2020£100
"Straight away the sun had to be centre of attention, it appears in most of my work, so it felt necessary for this project, I wanted to give it impact and depth so I added a gradient of yellow and a red core. I started to look at The Four Elements (earth, water, air, fire). I wanted to simplify these into block colours, patterns and abstract shapes."
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 the day-to-day makes up his source of inspiration and, through his work, he sets out to encourage the viewer to consider playfulness in art and life.
