About Ruben Benjamin's work

Ruben Benjamin is an artist from Germany. He began working with spray paint and textures at the age of 14, studied mechanical engineering and management, and produces his three-dimensional art in his studio in Munich. Ruben Benjamin’s work deals with perspective, natural phenomena, technology, and motion.

 

"To me, in my work, sculpture and painting are interwoven elegantly. I am fascinated by the vibrant luminosity which is achieved by arranging and combining colors in a three-dimensional, overlapping manner. This purism and the provoked contrast of light and shadow affected by the depth of the artworks characterize my work.​ The frozen dynamics in my textures allow me to capture unique moments in time. Therefore, I describe my work rather as sculptures for walls than paintings.

 

For me, nature and its patterns are one of the major inspirations for my artwork. Be it the topology of landscapes and deserts, the color composition of polar lights, or biological close-ups of plant cells. It never ceases to fascinate me. If you look at my work, you gaze into the humbleness and beauty of nature and project associations from your imaginary landscape on it.

Thanks to technology and digitalization, our perception of nature has vastly changed. The strong influence of technology and digitalism in my work is reflected via additive color mixing (as in LEDs) and the constant appearance of fluorescent colors.”

 

Ruben Benjamin (b. 1994) is a German artist based in Munich. He explores how the sculptural and contrasting composition impacts the perception of light and color across the entire spectrum. Benjamin's work changes vibrantly because of the various angles of color application on the surface, depending on the viewer's position and perspective.

 

Strongly influenced by his academic background, Benjamin’s work deals with natural phenomena, technology, perspective, and motion.
