Charles Benjamin Swedish, b. 1989

Overview

Charles Benjamin (*1989, Stockholm, Sweden) is a painter based in Bazel.

He often uses his practice to explore personal problems, at once formally documenting and making fun of economical hardship, spiritual depletion, and disbelief in his own ability and the medium itself. His practice apart from painting sometimes branches out in periodical projects such as living without any basic comforts on a gallery floor for two weeks (Being a better person (And Possibly Helping Others), 2016) or sitting under a tree for the time of an average working week (Work/Work Balance, 2017).
