About Benjamin Saunders

Mixed Media

Benjamin Saunders is an emerging South Australian artist known for his impressionistic and semi-abstract creations that beautifully convey his deep-rooted love for the environment. His artistic endeavours exude a vibrant energy and a bold exploration of the interplay between reality and the imagination.

With a professional graphic design and corporate marketing background, Benjamin has always been drawn to visually creative pursuits. Painting, in particular, has held a special place in his heart for many years. In 2022, he made the courageous decision to transition into a full-time artist, dedicating himself entirely to his passion.

Benjamin embarks on a journey through his artwork to comprehend his profound connection with the physical world surrounding him. He employs a variety of mediums, including acrylic, ink, and oils, to craft large-scale pieces on canvas and board. These creations often incorporate additional elements like charcoal, oil sticks, and graphite, adding depth and texture to the composition.

Benjamin's work prominently features landscapes and botanical themes, reflecting his fascination with the natural world, especially native flora. However, he also finds joy in exploring still life and occasionally delving into figurative art. His artistic style leans toward impressionism, occasionally veering into the realm of semi-abstraction. His primary goal is to capture his subjects' vibrant energy and essence, prioritising emotional expression over a strictly literal representation.

From his home studio in Flinders Park, Benjamin Saunders continuously channels his passion for art into captivating, thought-provoking creations that invite viewers to join him on his journey of exploration and self-discovery.
