Ben’s practice begins by asking the question, ‘what makes us happy, and why?’. This piece gives the viewer freedom to follow a narrative with no rules and no specific path or route. The composition, taken from a sketch made at Jersey Zoo, combines colour, space, texture, pattern and nostalgia using a mix of spray paint, acrylic paint and pasted paper. Zebra, leopard and tiger fur also appear depicting the oneness of all animals. The design takes inspiration from the world around us, as well as the artists Kurt Schwitters and John Stezaker.
