Benjamin Earl Howen III

Wisconsinite, exploring the depths of self-expression and subconscious extraction.

He continually investigates a spectrum of styles, techniques, and mediums. His works traverse the ideas of thought extraction, pareidolia, emotional responses, therapeutic creation. Inspired by artists such as Picasso, Willem De Kooning, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Jackson Pollock. The artist Implements a meditative creation process that begins with initial stokes executed with a limited purpose, additional instinctive marks build the basis for images beginning to form, continued attention renders them to completion.

“The images in my work are brought to life by the energy and emotion I give them; extracted from me, existing because I created them.”
