My art is lively, energetic and full of color, which often dictates the direction of my paintings. My art reflects my interest in using color and design to capture the viewer's eye. My relationship with paint inevitably takes a life of its own - a line or shape can explode into a totally enlightening visual experience.
I wake up everyday energized to create. The excitement and positive feeling I get from making something new or better makes every moment a satisfying adventure. Experimenting with paint and exploring the unknown often results in surprise and amazement. I go to sleep every night anxious to wake and continue the journey.
My greatest joy though, is touching lives through my art. I remember every piece of art in my parent’s house growing up, and am always aware that my art makes the same lasting impression with so many families and collectors who have purchased my work. Whether it’s an emotion or a smile, it warms my heart to know I have made a moment or many of happiness In someone’s life.
Each painting is unique and hand painted by the artist Ben Bonart. My artwork is appropriate for the home or office as well as for corporate and hospitality art buyers for restaurants, hotels, retail stores and showrooms. They can be purchased as fine art prints in any size on paper, canvas, wood or metal or as original art acrylic on stretched canvas in sizes ranging from 20”X20” to 80”X80”.
I use colors instead of object representations often using straight edges or other utensils instead of brushes to build large areas. Their ultimate goal is to express wisdom, mental focus, and inner emotions. My technique involves piling paint onto an art tool, such as a brush or a palette knife or ruler and layering the paint onto the canvas or paper to create a multi-layered and textured effect or an "impression".
My artwork has been likened to abstract impressionists like Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Mark Rothko, William de Kooning and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as Pop Artist like David Hockney, Peter Max, Leroy Neiman and even Andy Warhol.
