About the artist
Benjamin Cahillane is an international, traveling artist born in Hamburg, Germany. He mainly works with acrylic on canvas in an abstract expressionist style. Outside of his art practice, he works as a consultant traveling the world. Gaining insight from the many places he visits, he is inspired by the movement of nature he experiences. Iceland, Switzerland and Canada have been focal points in his journeys. Their natural beauty directly influences how he creates movement in his paintings. Expressing these movements in his own distinct style, he unconventionally strays from the traditional brush, using sponges to create vivid gestures and movements. Many of his paintings are spread over a couple of days, adding depth to the layers he weaves together over time. Cahillane shifts through these gestures, experimenting with specific colors through light and shadow and the diverse tones he can produce.
