Taking it one day at a time, using what he has been given, Ben paints surfboards, walls, canvases, and anything else that happens to be thrown his way.
Bens art is unique and extremely durable utilizing his painting skills with airbrush and ink, and combining his illustrative talent with his expertise in the media of fiberglass and resins on natural wood surfaces.
This is his story – a bit about him and where he comes from, as well as where he is headed.
Born in Tours, France to missionary parents, Ben was brought up in Southern Africa. Thriving in his environment and in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, he began drawing at an early age. It’s safe to say that he never stopped. Equipped with a business degree and an artistic upbringing, Ben traveled and worked in several surfboard factories, as well as different cities in several countries. Ben has painted boards for some of the world's best and continues to push the limits with what is possible with paint.
Ben's work is spotted all around the North Shore of Oahu and currently is on display at Haleiwa Beach House and WY's Gallery in Haleiwa, and we are proud to represent his exceptional artwork at Hawaii Art Market.
