In this new collection ‘Women of Colour’, Benny brings forth the concept of ‘colour’ taking its definition and symbolic range to connect his painted subjects to a diverse audience. In a time increasingly focused on political correctness, these pieces allow us to celebrate and express cultural individuality through universal attitudes and aesthetic appeal.
While identifying culturally, he became enamoured with the visual impact of each pattern and a textiles’ ability to enhance and reflect the wearer; inspiring him to present a series focusing on inner strength, self identity and the confidence that yields to an organic and true essence of beauty.
