Benjamin Garcia is an artist specializing in illustration for 2D/3D animation before he started to paint full time. His focus is mostly on portraits with an aesthetic language that is implicitly dark and subtly surreal with an approach to his subjects that is often subjective and intense. His style is inspired by the nebulous and unclear images of the mind and dreams, finding in his true base. Due to his first influences coming from comic artists like Moebius and Bill Sienkiewicz, and then later from Lucian Freud, his paintings are a succeeded mixture out of realistic and surreal imaginary, which captures us.
