“Inspired By Sights”, Northside Chronicle

Up and coming Brisbane artist Benjamin Werner draws inspiration from the places in which he has lived and seen. Werner, whose current exhibition, Land, Sea, Sky. Is being held in the PassionFruit Gallery on the Sunshine Coast, grew up working with artists, musicians and filmmakers who have had an impact on his artistic career. “I was drawing at night and fell into it later in my career around the age of 25,” Werner said. “I guess I am inspired by everything I see. There might be something that I see while im driving that I will try and get back and capture the next day,” he said. “Some of my artwork is based around the Gabba Hotel demolition which I really captured by driving past during the actual demolition”.
