About Ben Kelley

Saint Louis, MO

A St. Louis native, Ben's work has been featured locally, throughout various businesses, as well as internationally and most notably for his cover art published on a re-print of famed Dutch writer Nescio's Titaneller.

"I tend to get bored easily, so I like to mix things up and experiment with different ways to express an emotion or thought. Therefore, my work features a variety of creative elements including contrasting or abstracted hues, paint drips and splatters, an assortment of mediums, changes in technique including impasto and collage, or even handwritten compositions within a painting in order to better tell a story. As a result, my portfolio has become quite diverse with paintings that range in varying themes and style.

Exploring new forms of creative expression is what motivates me and is why I know that art is something I'll always have my hands in."
