'Rainy Street Cafe' by BENJAMIN
Chromacon 2015 exclusive release featuring art work by international guest Benjamin (China).
‘Rainy Street Cafe’ is a classic Benjamin painting inspired by his travels in Europe. Through the daring palette that his work is known for, Benjamin captures a melancholic moment in time as the girl gazes afar, lost in her thoughts.
This extremely rare Giclée print was released by the artist exclusively to Chromacon as an unsigned edition of 50. The original signed edition is non-longer available under exclusive arrangement with galleries in Europe and no further prints will be produced in the future. Features both certified archival inks and paper stock.
Benjamin is a prolific Chinese Manhua (Chinese Comics) Artist and illustrator whose work has been published in many different countries and languages. His vibrant colourful digital painting style has earned him comparisons to a modern Monet by art academics. Common themes found in Benjamin’s work include Chinese Rock, and the lives of urban youth in modern China. He is also the lead editor of True Colours – a comics and literature anthology magazine.
