Paintings by Ben Evans
Ben Evans uses his art as a way to expose and normalize what people do behind closed doors. His illustrations feature satirical contrasts, such as a man stuffing his face with food whilst laying on a treadmill with the caption “fitspo.” He often draws people smoking weed or with ungroomed body hair- all things many normal people have and do but pretend otherwise. His Instagram handle name “benisright” reflects his take on society. He is most definitely right that everyone has at least one ‘bad’ habit that they prefer to keep behind closed doors.
“The main inspirations I’ve been taking from are interiors that are familiar to me. I have a really deep connection with spaces and the way that humans interact inside a home,” he explains, adding “The figures are meant to embody the viewer and stand as something we can see in all of us.”
