Nathaniel Benjamin approaches printmaking and painting through a surrealistic lens, examining the interaction between self and other. Raised mostly in the Midwest, the religious environment of his formative years inspired him to study mysticism and mythology. With this foundation, his artwork seeks to bridge the spiritual and carnal, representing the human figure in an environment as mental as it is physical. He earned his BFA from the University of Nevada, Reno, and actively shows his work in the Great Basin. Recent exhibitions include Saint Mary’s Art Center, the Sierra Arts Gallery, and the Holland Project.
