Benjamin Laading was born in 1982 in Norway. After ten years of alternative painting, he was accepted to Villa Arson, the School of Fine Arts in Nice, from which he graduated in 2008. In 2009, he exhibited in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Marrakech …
Benjamin Laading is interested in a can of spray paint as an artistic tool. This modern tool offers the possibility of leaving the support towards infinity … The sensitivity of its breath materializes the movement of the body in space, and this spatiality results in a density of pigments, ranging from mist to wave.
It is the distance between the painter and his support, the rapidity of his movement, which define the aspect of his personality.
This tool is not only painting with the body, it is also directly linked to a phenomenon of free and spontaneous expression outside of frameworks and conventions.
Through painting processes inspired by illegal spray, Benjamin Laading highlights the tension that is created by passages of grey and a sensitive line, and using this conflict as plastic material, he offers a new unit.
