The Adorably Lonely Beasts of Ben Kehoe

Published October 21, 2009 by Graham


Populated by unexpectedly cuddly alligators, fuzzy buffalo, and mustachioed men, the curious paintings of Ben Kehoe balance precariously between gloom and whimsy; sadness and terminal cuteness. The permanent overcast of Kahoe’s wintry locales and the vulnerable expressions that his characters share create a cocooned dreamscape that’s punctured only by bouts of dark humor and well-executed absurdity.

    Both Ben and Andy *Kehoe* are amazing artists, and every time I see that someone else has discovered their work it makes me smile.

    Great write up, too.
