ART: BENJAMIN RAWSON

BENJAMIN RAWSON ARTI34324

Hailing from a small town in Lincolnshire, UK, Benjamin Rawson creates art with a flair for the tropical. Using gouache and acrylic paints, his 2-dimensional pieces consist of architectural designs, psychedelic patterns, dashes of pop art and religious symbolism—often including a token tropical tree. Some pieces reflect a purely tropical angle, with red, yellow and green foliage or through pastel-like yellows, purples and blues that make for distinct representation of the jungle theme. Others denote geometrical, architectural attributes with varied colorful patterns, tropical trees and… ever-present basketballs. His range can also be seen through works that denote intergalactic, spiritual undertones through earthy desert scenes juxtaposed with distant planets and colorful, celestial lights. His pastel-based work also denotes a contrast between relaxed, airy vibe and sharper, dark-colored geometric shapes. With such styles and variations, one could almost think they were made by more than one artist.
