Ben Eagle was born in Johannesburg in 1993, he grew up surrounded by art and music and started playing in bands at a young age. At 16 Eagle enrolled at the National School of the Arts where his focus was art and contemporary music.
In January 2016, Eagle embarked on a personal project where he would release a new silkscreen print every month for a year. This resulted in media coverage as well as a strong following of public buyers.
With refreshing clarity, Ben Eagle’s graphic art just is. “I’m not trying to make art that confuses people,” he declares. Instead, he delights, with pictures of globular, organic shapes swimming around in pools of colour, Ben’s work is minimalistic yet joyful, and it’s very hard to look without cracking a smile.
