Benjamin Garcia was born 1986 in Caracas, Venezuela. At the beginning of his work he was fascinated comics artists like Moebius and Bill Sienkiewicz. Little by little he made the transition from illustrating for animation to painting when he discovered the works of artists such as Lucian Freud, Jenny Saville and Kent Williams. His painting focuses mainly on portraits with an aesthetic language that is both dark and subtly surreal with an approach to his subjects. Benjamin participated in many exhibitions.
