LOVE SEX DEATH "A Story About a Nobody"
The Original Art of Ben Walker

About the Book
The art of Ben Walker.
The paintings from LOVE SEX DEATH have all been painted by dripping a very minimal amount of paint onto canvas with a stiff paint brush. All the art was stripped down to the very simplest of forms with black and white; with the occasional fury of red. My goal was to create a visual story with real human drama and life experiences with a single drip of paint.
Ben Walker - Simplicity has been the basis of his latest collection, LOVE SEX DEATH: A Story About a Nobody. Singular drip figures flow off of the canvas in the most surreal, yet entirely human shapes, illustrating that the essentials of humanity can be summarized in black and white (with the occasional flurry of red). Ben’s pieces can not be entirely defined as one type of art or be contributed to one culture due to his intuitive eye for the universal idea of colors and their symbolism and remarkable aptitude for combining color and movement to evoke emotion in his viewers.
