Piece description from the artist
That is of a woman who is almost tree like, who is moving forward in her fall season even though she knows winter is upon us thus the dreary look on her face. This is not a piece of sadness for spring will come and bring her back to life.
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.
