Benjamin Laading’s work questions the position of counterculture in our societies.
The artist is passionate about what could otherwise be considered unwanted in the monotony of a functional urban landscape. He evolved in the vandal world of graffiti and draws his inspirations from his fellow artists in order to develop a deeper analysis.
In his last series, Benjamin Laading endeavoured to transcribe and fix on canvas the instant when the paint is sprayed by the aerosol. His dimensional approach bears the infinitely small on gigantic canvases, and confronts the significant to the signified.
Benjamin Laading currently lives in Paris and his work is exhibited in France, Switzerland, Norway, and now in Morrocco at Jardin Rouge.
