Here, the vibrant juxtaposition of patterns and games intertwines with a heartfelt narrative, inviting viewers into a world where fun, art, and profound human-animal bonds coalesce into a stunning visual spectacle.
Native New Yorker, Benjamin Casiano is an accomplished creative director, designer & painter. He received his BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Painting was always his first love. Inspired & influenced by the great masters worldwide, But it's the women that played a crucial role in his life, which is why he pays tribute to them with his paintings. Casiano’s work fuses expressionism & pop/neo-cubism. Although he uses geometric and abstract shapes in his artwork, a prominent focal point is the one-eye figurative. A reflection to his alter ego & a self-portrait of his subconscious. Casiano said, “Im blind in one eye, but the irony is I was painting figures with a single eye years before losing my vision.” Casiano always had a love for strings & classical music. “Music & art go hand in hand. I never learned to play but I at least paint my favorite musical instruments with the ladies,” he says. For Casiano, painting has proven to be a positive emotional outlet. His works have been exhibited in galleries in the U.S., Europe as far away as China. Recognized with numerous honors & awards. Published in articles worldwide. Casiano is currently exhibiting in New York City, Philadelphia, Santa Rosa, San Fransisco, Paris & Oudewater, Holland. Numerous pieces are owned by corporations & private collectors world wide. His goal is to simply add something not seen in modern-day culture. Something different, something beautiful, one painting at a time. One exhibition at a time.
