Ben Is cool!

My name is Benjamin Howen III. I am a Wisconsin/American painter, graphic designer, and printmaker interested in vintage cars, pinups, sci-fi, low-brow iconography, monsters, the fantastical, pirates, and oddities. Inspired by comic, street, pop, and modern art. I am a self-taught, sometimes called an “outsider artist”. I acquired most of my artistic knowledge from public schools, books, the internet, and through trials with “happy accidents”. It’s worth noting that I have a type of color deficiency known as protanopia, because of this I tend to be attracted to using highly saturated colors in my art.
