Back in my first year of University I came across this Vancouver artist Ben Reeves, and fell in love! I did a review of his work for my critical thinking in the visual arts class, and have continued to follow his works. Photographs of his work don't do it justice. His use of thick globs of white oil paint create a beautiful three dimensional texture and depth, that capture the environmental essences of a true Vancouver.
