Art Collection NYC and Artsy are happy to announce an
Online Exclusive and gallery solo show by Benjamin Casiano.
Benjamin Casiano fell victim to the great recession. He revisited what he has been doing his whole life.
At first, Benjamin used it as a diversion, only to realize it was simply a course correction.
Today he sees the world as if through a kaleidoscope, deconstructing the world onto a mosaic canvas.
This is not a movement but rather a form of fragmentation of the psyche, tapping into the deepest part of the soul. Every day Benjamin continues to explore various forms of abstract thinking, compositions
& techniques. His life transcends with a paintbrush becoming a mediation outlet to his spirituality.
Native New Yorker Benjamin Casiano is an accomplished creative director, designer,
curator & painter. He received his BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Although he ventured into the world of design, art was always his first form of self-expression or communication. He felt compelled to return & continue his journey as an artist. Many describe his art as a form of pop-cubism. Today his art is owned by corporate & private collectors in the US & abroad. His goal is simply to add something not seen in modern day culture. Something different, something beautiful, one painting at a time. One exhibition at a time.
I get asked, what's with the big eye? I always had a bit of a fascination with eastern philosophy and the mind's eye or center eye. Ironically, little did I know it was an insight into my own fate. I began developing complications, eventually losing vision from one eye. Cosmic coincidence? An epiphany? Who's to say but I consider the one eye figurative reflections of my subconscious and alter ego. Becoming my trademark as it may.
"No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination".
