Brooklyn artist Ben Angotti works in dualities. A classically trained artist, he juxtaposes high Romantic themes and Symbolism with urban street art and graffiti to create powerful images. He often weaves technical skill with allegorical commentaries on modernity, sensuality, and the dark recesses of the human soul.
Ben works in many mediums, from sculpture to spray paint, in an effort to create works that are at once temporal and timeless. Eros and Thanatos ground his work thematically. His figurative forms are ethereal, and carry a sense of the fleeting moment that they convey.
