Piece description from the artist
Dance Till There is Rain.
I am a 21 year old guy who found a passion in art. I have always loved it but never considered it as a profession because of the idea that everyone has of artist and them being poor.It was only until a couple years ago when my heart told me this was where I need to be that I decided I could never take a normal 9 to 5 but instead become a great artist.
At the age of twenty-two, Ben Geiger has already discovered a deep passion for art. He has always loved the process of art-making, but never considered it as a profession until recently; A couple of years ago, Ben realized that he could never take a nine-to-five job, so he set out to become a professional artist. Since then, he has worked with painting, drawing, photography, design and sculpture. For Ben, the art-making process is about exploring the imagination, and he looks to "Gustav Klimt":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustav_Klimt, "Tim Burton":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Burton, and "Jamie Hewlett":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamie_Hewlett for inspiration.
Recently, Ben's work has been featured on "Society 6":http://society6.com/artist/BenGeiger9 and on "Tumblr Radar":http://tumblrradararchive.tumblr.com/post/10248612432/fer1972-panda-by-ben-geiger.
Ben currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
