About THE ARTIST
My name is Benjamin, I’ve been a working artist for about 10 years. Though my portfolio mainly comprises conceptual painting, I found it very enjoyable to produce scientific illustration in a part of nature that I’ve always been fond of. Giologica is a dedication to my love of geology and the attentive study of intricate natural specimens. All rocks and minerals exhibit strong individualistic qualities and are an echo of vast distances in time… although common specimens are usually overlooked. When painting this subject matter, attention is brought to these pieces of history in a unique and powerful way.
Giologica was published in the June 2019 Edition of Rock & Gem Magazine in an article entitled “The Artistry of Nature”. Thank you Rock & Gem!
