Benjamin Degen

Published January 12, 2010 by Molly



If the word “mind-bending” didn’t carry connotations of Magic Eye paintings and CGI technology and Timothy Leary, it would be the perfect descriptor of Benjamin Degen’s pieces. The Brooklyn-based artist fills his thoughtfully-drafted works on paper with nature, nudes, text, books and, why not, the Financial Times. Alternately folksy and futuristic, the works are rendered in graphite and colored pencil with shading that will give you shivers. Ready, set, explore.
