I'm sure I yack on a lot about Ben and his art but I thought it would be a fun to show you guys some of his art happenings :) When we first met (online) he said he loved drawing and sent me through some of his pieces. I remember opening that email and having very low expectations of what I was about to see. Of course I was pleasantly surprised and should of never doubted he'd be an amazing artist :) This year he took a bold move and decided to go to school for ceramics and has landed a bunch of fun stuff, like being asked to show his pieces at the Cooroy Butter Factory (turned art gallery!).
He's been experimenting with some larger size sculptural pieces which are probably my favourite size!
He also makes super beautiful necklaces - you might remember on that I rocked on my Mermaid Shoot here.
It's fun to see his 2-d style translate into 3-d, I'm not even sure which I prefer, actually that's a lie out of all his creative pursuits I always tell him his poetry is my favourite (by the smallest percent!) I need to share some in the future :)
Ben is involved in a crew called SFP, which comprises of Ben and three other artists. A few months back they held a group exhibition together in Maroochydore down at the Square & Friends gallery :)
One of the dudes is Shiroi Usagi who is responsible for those three dudes above :)
The Vikings and skateboard is by Phil B who I'm sure I've mentioned before :)
They also did a live graff mural on opening night which was fun :)
Another Phil skateboard piece
And Ben's Robot pieces his did the exhibition. He has what I wish I had, the patience and steady hand to do the finest line work - super jealous!
The three guys all lined up :)
Ben also had some ceramics in this exhibition too :)

Phil definitely loves his Vikings
